As the brain repairs itself, some impairments heal while others emerge. We will discuss analogies to help the audience appreciate these elegant reparative and regenerative functions, while showing some scientific evidence for these processes. Based on the presenter’s ongoing research, information will be discussed with regard to aging with a brain injury, whether starting from puberty or subject to a repeated head injury. Audience members will leave with an appreciation for the scope of issues regarding traumatic brain injury as a disease, and the assurance that treatment and recovery are possible.     For questions, please contact operations@biaaz.org or call the office at 602-508-8024.
