Pinpointing the problem

So I met with my cognitive rehab doctor…apparently the key to rehab is identifying the problem in your brain at a very detailed level. This used to be used to identify brain tumors before we had medical imaging. It’s just that detailed.

Once the problem is found work arounds can be devised. A simple example would be reading slower. Hopefully there is more to it than that because I’ve tried that and while it worked initially it no longer works, there’s just too big a gap between how fast I read and what I comprehend.

We also discussed neuplasticity and brain regrowth after an injury and basically the jury is still out with major work in journals like nature having conflicting outcomes.
