Dr. Taub, a noted behavioral neuroscientist, developed constraint-Induced therapy, which has been shown to be effective in improving movement after stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological injuries. In this intervention, the unaffected limb is immobilized, encouraging use of the weakened limb. CI therapy produces an increase in grey matter tissue in motor areas in the cerebral cortex of both hemispheres a true remodeling of the brain. This occurs in older patients as well as children, indicating that the plasticity of the brain persists throughout the life span. Grey matter in the hippocampus also increases, indicating that the creation of new nerve cells may be involved in the therapeutic effects produced by CI therapy.

Dr. Taub has received numerous awards for his research, which has been called one of the ten most exciting lines of neuroscience research. Nearly 400 papers have been published on the effects of CI therapy.
