Monday, December 08, 2008 Preventing, Treating, and Living with Traumatic Brain Injury; "Exploring Your Brain" Video

I recently came across, a website that offers a wide range of resources about brain injury (TBI).

According to the website, "BrainLine is funded by the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center, the primary operational TBI component of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury, through a subcontract award with the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine".

The website offers free online webcasts, such as "After the Injury: TBI and Acute Care", books, tips, information about concussions, articles about treatment, and "Exploring Your Brain with Garrick Utley", a series of 20 videos.

Below is the video, The Broken Brain:

Transcript (pdf)

Be sure to explore the video and multimedia resources on the website, information about TBI and school issues, and the article about virtual reality, Analysis of Assets for Virtual Reality Applications in Neuropsychology (Albert. A. Rizzo, Maria Schultheis, Kimberly A. Kerns, and Catherine Mateer, Neuropsychological Rehabilitation)

I was happy to find a link to the AdolescentLiteracy (AdLit) website, which is full of ideas and strategies for educators and parents of teens, the age group that is most likely to sustain head injuries.
