Thanks for the feedback and pleased you are enjoying this blog. About twenty, fifteen or so years ago, my wife, a nurse said ofall my articles (and blogs), sharing my writings on head(brain) injury would help and impact the most people, because “your story is so unique and you live it, with the problems…daily”!
m’s always right…as usual
All the best

After traumatic brain injury, a young man’s astounding recovery

Featured Image -- 106

After traumatic brain injury, a young man’s astounding …

Studies have shown that youth is a prominent factor in neuro-plasticity, the brain’s ability to form new connections to compensate for ones that get blocked or severed, to partially repair injured pathways and even to re-purpose parts of the brain. It is clear, doctors say, that young people have greater potential for co-opting undamaged parts of the brain to take on new functions than older people do.

The Silent Epidemic of Acquired Brain Injury

For many people, following injury there are obvious physical consequences, such as paralysis, weakness, fatigue, headache or problems with coordination. Many may have difficulty communicating, whether expressively or receptively, or both. For many more, it is the less outwardly visible consequences which nevertheless produce the more severe restrictions to participating in everyday life. Brain injury can affect your ability to maintain attention, to remember, to think, plan and problem solve and can hamper your insight and your ability to manage emotions. Everyday situations can be rendered almost impossible for some people with brain injury through damage to cognitive and emotional skills that the rest of us take for granted.

Changing a Common Belief About Brain Injury: “No longer can we falsely assume that brain injury survivors can recover only for a certain period or that they are destined to regain only a limited number of skills. The potential for improvement is far greater than previously believed possible…”

“No longer can we falsely assume that brain injury survivors can recover only for a certain period or that they are destined to regain only a limited number of skills. The potential for improvement is far greater than previously believed possible. With the right interventions, TBI survivors can continue to make progress repairing their brain’s health and their lives for many years. That knowledge should significantly change the way we think about–and address–this enormous public health challenge.”

As a scientist, I am impassioned to share research findings that upend conventionally-held wisdom about the brain – modifying viewpoints that are obsolete, wrong, and disabling.

The journal Neuropsychological Rehabilitation has just published the results of a study conducted by our interdisciplinary team of experts at the Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas. The study found that strategy-based cognitive training significantly improves the cognitive performance, psychological and neural health of those who have experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI), long after the initial injury.

These findings should permanently put to rest the view, once commonly held among scientists and the medical community, that the brain can only recover lost functions for a period of one year following injury. Unfortunately, insurance companies still base their coverage policies on this outdated assumption. What’s worse, many of those afflicted with TBI may be tempted to give up on their recovery based on what we now know to be false.
