TScientists at Boston University and the University of Texas at Austin used computer simulations of the brain to predict the extent to which bilingual Hispanic stroke survivors will recover their language skills.
Neural network models simulate the brain of a bilingual person with language impairment, and their brain's response to therapy in English and Spanish.
The models can highlight the optimal language to focus on in rehabilitation, as well as forecasting post-therapy results.
The models were able to predict therapeutic effects accurately in the treated language, which implied that the simulations could inform healthcare providers' rehabilitation plans.
