  • A Neuroscientist's description of his concussion

    This article just came out in the New Yorker.  The write, who is a neuroscientist (studies the brain), describes his injury and symptoms. I especially like how he wrote about why symptoms occurred several days after his injury, as well as his analogy of his word finding difficulties.  I am sure many of you with concussions will relate to this article. His discussion about sleep was also descriptive.  Please feel free to share the article with your lived ones, so that can understand more about your concussion.

    We a Neuro Rehab Associates would be happy to talk to you about any of these symptoms and options on how to mange them.

  • Sleep and Brain Injury

    People sustaining brain injuries often have sleep difficulties whether it is falling asleep or staying asleep.
    Information from Brainline.org regarding sleep stated: "During sleep, your brain and body recharge. Proper sleep follows regular and predictable rhythm cycles. When you sleep, your brain sets down memories and refreshes various connections that allow your brain to work. Quality sleep helps you think more clearly, be more alert, and function at your best in all areas: mental, physical, and emotional."
