Functional brain plasticity is an important characteristic of the brain and enables an individual to learn and adapt as a result of life experiences. In this study we investigated the reorganization of functional brain networks after eyeblink conditioning in awake rabbits by resting state fMRI. This work builds the foundation for studying pre-clinically how cognitive impairment affects learning processes, its implication on brain capability to adapt and learn, and the possible impact of new therapies.
