The developing brain has a powerful ability to modify its own structure and function for recovery from injury in efforts to compensate for loss of function1,2. In critical period, developing brain has maximal neuronal synaptic connections so it is most amenable to changes in response to external stimulus such as physical exercise3. However, after critical period, neuronal synaptic connections are reduced, and maintained at the reduced state3. Here, we demonstrate enhanced neuroplasticity with physical exercise performed beyond critical period for rats that are injured during critical period. We obtained the BOLD-fMRI response and the interneuron activity with LFP electrophysiological recording.
