ScienceDaily (2008-11-06) — People who have suffered traumatic brain injuries and who are unable to speak or move are being given the first chance to communicate using just the power of thought — and a laptop loaded with sophisticated algorithms.
Please share this with any and all advocacy groups and philanthropists you know, a little money for this project would go a long way to giving some dear people a better chance at fulfilling their potential.
By the way, local clinical work/research here in Perth by Dr Neil Beck suggests Neurofeedback techniques can play a major role in recovery for people with head injuries.
It works with the brain’s natural “plasticity” to develop new neural pathways.
I’ve also found Neurofeedback helpful for PTSD and Panic – a lot more efficacious than those damned SSRI’s
btw… I’ve often been called a “bleeding heart” – well, if a heart’s not bleeding, it’s dead, and that’s OFFAL!!!
