Episode 30: Brain Reconstruction Ahead – Expect Delays

Episode 30: Brain Reconstruction Ahead – Expect Delays

Would you be willing to head-butt a ram for an icy cold bottle of Mountain Dew? That’s the kind of lighthearted foolery that got a lot of laughs during a Super Bowl commercial one year. At the end, we see the young man sipping from the winning drink, but you’re not quite sure if he is okay because you can hear a stutter in his speech as he staggers away in a disoriented haze. Even though our precious brain comes in a special protective casing, not everyone is lucky enough to keep it safe from harm. Whether it is a tiny bump, a big jolt, or a hard blow to head, the result can often be life altering. Today, my guest, Professor Jerry Hoepner, will discuss the art and science of neurorehabilitation after a traumatic brain injury and its relationship with executive function and real-world functioning.
