Brainstorming about Brain Injuries: What’s New in the Neuroscience of Recovery?

Wednesday, November 5, 2008 @ 10:00 AM-11:30 AM

Featured Speaker: Susan M. Fitzpatrick, Ph.D.,
Vice President, James S. McDonnell Foundation,
former executive director, Brain Trauma Foundation

Injuries to the brain, whether from trauma or disease, often result in cognitive losses– mild, moderate, or severe, that impact many aspects of daily life. A complex web binds the physical brain with the ephemeral mind; and injury to one cannot be untangled from damage to the other. Neuroscience, the field of research dedicated to understanding how the brain works, is also devoted to understanding what happens when the brain is injured and what can be done to help its recovery.

Join Dr. Susan Fitzpatrick, Vice President of the James S. McDonnell Foundation and former executive director of the Brain Trauma Foundation, as she explores some of the recent progress in neuroscience research with potential to improve the clinical management of neurological conditions. We’ll also take a look at why some recent findings could lead us back to the drawing board.
