Resumen

INTRODUCCIÓN: Con la creación en 1989 del CIREN, Cuba entró en la nueva era de la neurología. Durante la segunda mitad del siglo XX los conceptos de la neurociencia evolucionaron del estatismo a un sistema adaptable y cambiante, moldeado por la experiencia, a través de la propiedad de plasticidad neuronal. El objetivo del trabajo es presentar los logros más relevantes de este esfuerzo de investigación en esta institución.

DESARROLLO: Además de la atención de pacientes cubanos y extranjeros, se ha desarrollado una intensa investigación sobre todas las herramientas potenciales que podrían servir para recuperar o restaurar la función nerviosa afectada por traumatismos o enfermedad. El paso inicial fue el trasplante neural de células dopaminérgicas a pacientes parkinsonianos. Otras intervenciones de la neurocirugía funcional o resectiva también se intentaron para trastornos del movimiento o epilepsia. La investigación básica ha contribuido a confirmar los beneficios esperados para tratar con éxito los trastornos degenerativos, y los programas de neurorrehabilitación diseñados tratan de inducir un entorno promotor de la plasticidad para maximizar la recuperación.

CONCLUSIONES: La investigación en el CIREN ocupa un lugar privilegiado. Algunos resultados han traído nuevos tratamientos clínicos y quirúrgicos. Otros, principalmente los de investigación básica, aún no han encontrado una traducción terapéutica. Pero todos han contribuido en gran medida a dar forma al perfil único de esta institución cubana. La manera de avanzar en los pasos firmes hacia ese objetivo, es el camino de una ciencia sólida y de alto nivel.
