People have heard about brain injury but they really don't think about until it happens to them, which at that point it is all they or anyone they know can talk about. It is a sinister injury that can change everything in a blink of an eye, and as it goes on misunderstood the dark side of a person a new person starts to emerge, spouses suddenly in a relationship with a stranger, even the survivor does not know themselves. Lost alone and frightened learn about it before it’s too late, before it can take you or a loved one’s life away forever, the more you know the better you will be. You are not along there are millions of us among you. We represent over 70% of those in prison and even more of the homeless. Together we can stop the devastating effects of this sinister injury that can last a life time. One that is big business over 75 billion a year, where the rich control the destiny of the lost for a buck. Let us make a world where we are accepted not jailed or isolated, empowered not controlled. One where we embrace this new person to be a better, braver, strong more creative and productive part of society.

Upcoming Broadcasts

EEG's are a necessary step in pinpointing the damage of each TBI. Since the damage occurring after a brain injury is unique for each person, an individualized recording for each case can help the doctors. Those diagnosing the brain must be able to pin-point the depth and breadth of the dysfunction to treat each case of brain trauma. The first stage in doing this is to locate someone who understands how to read these electronic charts. My guest tonight is such a person - Jay Gunkelman. EEG's are a readout of the of each person's brain's function. These printouts can be interpreted on several levels, ranging from neuroscience information (specific for brain injuries) to the various degrees of consciousness. (Jay is past-President of the Biofeedback Society of California.) We can use these studies in observing Parkinsons disease and defining the various types of autism, as well as TBI's. We look at an EEG to assess the integrity of neural processing capabilities in each patient. We can classify the damage seen athough EEG patterns in general by observing patterns. There are many items influening each individual readng, including the specific events and mood of the person being tested at each specific time. Looking at all this information can lead to a pattern and that is the job of Jay. He needs to know, in order to evaluate a TBI study properly, 3 things: the severity of the injury, the time, and the specific sensory issues (sight or hearing loss). That information, gives the baseline for the reading. Then the interpreter must asses the patient's state of consciousness relative to test-taking, and the physical and cognitive abilities to respond and follow directions, which also will effect the outcome of the test. That nformation and the EEG result is then able to give a good diagnosis of the current brain state.
