Brain Stimulation Therapy May Increase Motor Skills of Brain Injured Victims

Scientists have developed a new method of administering a mild electrical current to improve motor skills in a traumatic brain injury victim.

The newly discovered method of treatment was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The study followed subjects who had suffered from stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI) and placed victims in a duration of tests including squeezing a joy stick during a computerized targeting game.

The participants were divvied into two separate groups; one group received the real electrical current, a method known as the transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), while the other group received only a mock simulation of tDCS. The first group that received the real tDCS therapy was found to have “improved significantly more than that of the control group,” according to news reports on the study.

What is Traumatic Brain Injury?

According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a traumatic brain injury occurs after a “blow or jolt to the head or penetrating head injury” occurs, disrupting the regular functions of the brain.

A brain injury can vary in severity as well as stages — from mild to moderate to severe and fatal. No matter if a TBI victim shows no signs of an injury, it is important to receive medical assistance, as the onset of brain injury side effects may occur much later, and become more harmful to a victim.

The CDC reports that if an individual is involved in an incident, but are unsure if they suffer from TBI, that they should try to recount whether or not they have been victim to any of the following brain injury signs and symptoms:

* headache

* continued neck pain

* difficulty remembering/concentrating

* slowness in actions/thoughts

* easily confused

* feelings of sleepiness/exhaustion

* dizziness

* blurred vision

* sensitivity to light

* loss of sense of smell/taste

* ringing in the ears

* nausea

* mood changes

* sleep pattern changes/disruptions

Seeking Assistance

It is common for a traumatic brain injury patient to feel stress and isolation after such an incident occurs. However, it is essential that a TBI victim receive the appropriate diagnosis and treatment for their condition, which is vital to their improvement and success in overcoming such an injury.

Additionally, brain injured victims may find it necessary to locate an experienced brain injury lawyer who can offer details into the victim’s unique traumatic brain injury case. If a TBI victim suffers from job loss or loss of income as well as increasing medical bills or onset of disabilities, they may be eligible to receive monetary compensation for their brain injury.

Such an injury and the after effects of a TBI incident may result in huge financial tolls on a victim, their family and friends, which is why creating a traumatic brain injury lawsuit is a possibility to consider as monetary funds may be compensated to a victim for the loss and difficulty endured.

What the Wedding Planner Can’t Teach You – Survival Skills for Wedded Bliss – Advice on Overcoming Moral, Financial and Lifestyle Issues that Couples Face

(PRWEB) May 25, 2005

The flowers have been ordered, the brides maid’s dress colors picked and you and your fiancé are on the fast track to a joyous wedding day. But, are you on track with your relationship? After, “and they lived happily ever after,” what happens next?

The fact is that couples spend twice as much time discussing wedding plans than they do considering the impact their upbringing, background, and individual expectations will have on their relationship? Ands if you start out coming from different social, religious or ethnic backgrounds, the chances for a problem marriage increases, unless you work out the details before you walk down that aisle.

According to Dr. Ruby Payne, couples who come from different class backgrounds have different expectations, priorities, and goals, and cultural or class differences can cause serious unexpected conflict in regard to subjects such as finance management, family commitment, and raising children. Payne, a Ph.D. who works with psychologists, educators, lawyers and judges on the hidden rules of class, the key is communication and an open mind. Her new book, Crossing the Tracks for Love, highlights everyday examples and exercises that aid couples in identifying and resolving potential issues of conflict based on class upbringing so they can learn how to better understand what motivates their partner’s behavior.

The first step according to Payne is for couples to talk as much about their nitty-gritty expectations of marriage as they do about their wedding reception menu. Conflicts can be surprisingly simple according to Payne, one example she offers: a newlywed bride, who comes from an upper middle class background, opens a cell phone plan and picks a top of the line model valued at 0. After a couple of weeks, she accidentally loses it and wants to replace it for the exact same phone, which will cost another 0. Her new husband, who grew up in a modest home with few luxuries, believes that she doesn’t need that expensive phone and can’t understand why she can’t just pick the standard model. In some instances a major fight could ensue from this seemingly mundane situation, but if the couple work together to understand the dimensions of each other’s class background they will be able to better navigate the sometimes bumpy road of wedded bliss, and be better able to deal with other issues in their lifetime together.

Though some relationship experts would have you believe “Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus,” in actuality, conflicts in relationship are caused less by genders differences and more by class structure. Payne’s Crossing the Tracks for Love evaluates how common occurrences may or may not affect a person based on what type of class mindset they come from – Poverty, Middle Class or Wealthy, thus determining the often hidden boundaries and rules we live by. Once these hidden rules are identified and recognized, couples can than learn how to communicate, compromise, coexist, and thrive in their relationships.

Crossing the Tracks for Love: What to Do When You and Your Partner Grew Up in Different Worlds by Ruby K. Payne, Ph.D.; Published by Aha! Process Inc., April 2005; ISBN: 1-929229-33-X
