This month Aaron is talking to Dr. Tom McAllister, the Albert Eugene Sterne Professor and Chairman, Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry. He specializes in studying brain injuries and chronic traumatic encephalopathy, and he’ll tell about brain injuries, their treatment, and some of the advances in detecting such injuries.

The Healthcare Triage podcast is sponsored by Indiana University School of Medicine whose mission is to advance health in the state of Indiana and beyond by promoting innovation and excellence in education, research and patient care.

IU School of Medicine is leading Indiana University’s first grand challenge, the Precision Health Initiative, with bold goals to cure multiple myeloma, triple negative breast cancer and childhood sarcoma and prevent type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.

I didn’t know this existed!

Jim Brewer says:

I'm a neuropsychologist and work primarily with alzheimer's disease of but went through clinical rotation with most types of brain injuries and organic disease and neuro stroke injuries. I'm finding this podcast very interesting.

Sparks and Bubbles says:

Not just mechanical force on the brain can create concussion… Especially in the presence of gut microbiota imbalance.

Please look at Dr. Nemechek protocol and research.

jliller says:

Mild brain injury? Is that like a tactical nuke?

John Shirley says:

I sustained a TBI from a fall with an initial GCS of 6; and induced coma for about two weeks. I've been enduring my own Invisible Injury for about 1.5y now. Currently I struggle most with sound (noise) and sometimes with speech. Oh, the stories I could (happily) share as a survivor! I am hugely thankful to both Drs. Carroll and McAllister for bringing this into the spotlight.

Bazooka Tooth says:

Makes me second guess playing football. Remember some of those head ringers! Maybe that’s a good sign? all jokes aside, this is a serious issue in sports and a serious question for brain injuries in general.

Über Hobo says:

I had a TBI with a GCS score of 8. I'm still alive somehow though. I have trouble controlling some of my body, but I think I regained all my mental faculties.

Doc Atheist says:

Please consider doing an episode on ME/CFS. Dr. Anthony Kamaroff just published an update article in JAMA that covers things well enough to get you started. I'd hoped to see something after the Feb. 10, 2015 IOM report, but now would also be a good time, since Stanford and Harvard just opened a new research center for ME/CFS in the Boston area. Thanks!

Go4a Hike says:

As someone who has had multiple concussions, this was very interesting- thanks
