After you review/watch the series of videos showing Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford’s recovery from traumatic brain injury as the basis for this discussion forum.
Explain your understanding of the term “neuroplasticity”.
In what way do you see neuroplasticity represented in the congresswoman’s recovery?
cceed in limiting trade to protect threatened species to a great extent. It is impossible for a convention that covers such a broad range of species to control the trade of every single animal, therefore the positive empirical evidence demonstrates that CITES is overall successful. In order to demonstrate this, I will first explore the listing procedure and the debatable presence of scientific objectiveness, which impacts its applicability and context. Next, the structure of the Convention will be scrutinised in regard to how it helps and hinders implementation. Further, the issues and responses regarding CITES’ practical enforcement will be assessed. After having determined that the advantages of the Convention itself outweigh the disadvantages, the research question will be analysed through the case study of elephants. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora entered into force on the 1st July 1975. It focusses on regulating international trade of certain species of animals and plants to ensure that their survival is not threatened. Currently, CITES includes as many as 35,000 species. Due to the wildlife trade market being worth billions of pounds and involving thousands of species, controlling it is vital. CITES focuses specifically on protecting species that are being exploited, due to the large amount of trade. Since levels of exploitation for each species differ, CITES has various levels of protection. Although this treaty is multilateral and therefore has legally binding force, it simply provides a framework within which each Party should adopt their own domestic legislation. This illustrates the necessity of strong international cooperation to achieve the aim of the Convention. Due to participation being voluntary, the fact that so many countries have joined demonstrates a willingness to collaborate in attempts to save endangered species. The balanced philosophical approach also provides for why the Convention has received so much respect and now includes 183 Parties. CITES is one of the international environmental treaties that has been most extensively adopted and achieved great successes. The supreme decision-making body of CITES is the Co>GET ANSWER
