She cannot move even to lift her own head, said Mr Witcomb.But the barrister added that, mercifully, she has a good sense of hearing and gets great pleasure from listening to music.“She is a child of a gentle … [Read more...] about Peterborough City Hospital ordered to pay £7 million to girl (7) who suffered catastrophic brain injuries at birth

However, a new Australian-led study has concluded that this practice does not actually benefit the patient, reports a The BMJ news article. Cooling the brain was previously believed to decrease the harmful inflammation and biochemical cascades caused by traumatic brain injury. This would preserve more of the brain functions of the patient over the long term. However, studies conducted to determine the actual effectiveness of brain cooling contradicted each other. Some claimed it was effective at improving neurological outcomes while others reported a … [Read more...] about SHOCK: Brain cooling does not benefit people who have a brain injury

RACE ace Michael Schumacher may be secretly moved to a specialist brain injury clinic in the US, according to reports from his homeland. German magazine Bravo claims medics are preparing to transfer the much-loved sports star to a leading medical centre in Dallas, Texas. Mark Weeks, the director of the unnamed clinic, told the magazine: "We have a lot of experience with patients who are suffering this kind of trauma. "There is probably no clinic in Europe that treats as many cases as we do." Earlier it was revealed the Formula One legend is "not bed-ridden or surviving on tubes" as further details about his recovery emerged. Friends and family shed new light on the condition of the seven-time Formula One champ after a horror skiing accident five years ago. They revealed how he is receiving £50,000-a-week medical care while being treated in his home - not at a specialised hospital in a Swiss chateau. The news came after a German archbishop said last month that the legend "senses … [Read more...] about Michael Schumacher ‘set for top-secret transfer to US clinic for pioneering brain injury treatment’

The study, published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, utilized an ischemia mouse model to investigate this claim. The flavor that most people associate with licorice – and the one that they either love or hate – isn’t … [Read more...] about Delicious remedy: Licorice is a potential treatment for ischemia-induced brain damage
