CHICAGO, June 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The neurological system is the most fascinating and complicated in the human body. The human brain performs so many amazing tasks on a daily basis that it should come as no surprise that over 600 brain disorders have currently been identified and are being researched and treated by neurologists and neurosurgeons. The American Academy of Neurology, The Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and Chairman of Neurosurgery at West Virginia University Hospitals Dr. Julian Bailes join Mediaplanet in this campaign for Brain Health.
When a Diagnosis Becomes a Calling
Brain Health features the inspirational story of Dawn Brinkley. Despite being diagnosed with the movement disorder Cervical Dystonia (CD) at the age of 32, Brinkley was crowned Mrs. North Carolina, using her pageant title to advocate for other sufferers of CD.
The report also introduces a number of novel therapies and treatments for neurological issues. It highlights the exciting work being done in a clinical trial called SyNAPSe, which will ideally lead to the development of the first drug treatment for traumatic brain injury. Sufferers of Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA), an often-misdiagnosed disorder in which one laughs or cries uncontrollably, can find new hope with a pharmaceutical therapy called Nuedexta.
In partnership with The Chiari Care Center, the Centre for Neuro Skills, the Make Your Mark Campaign, Mind Technologies, Inc., ImPACT Concussion Management, Marbles: The Brain Store, BHR Pharmaceuticals and Avanir Pharmaceuticals, Mediaplanet is proud to present the Brain Health report.
