Can the Damaged Brain Repair Itself?

[ted id=1935]

In this Ted Talk , Siddharthan Chandran explores how to heal damage from degenerative disorders such as MS and motor neuron disease (ALS).  As Psychiatric APRN’s we are continually interested in novel treatments and the opportunities neuroscience might offer our patients who suffer with mental disorders.   Psychiatric CNS‘s and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners routinely screen for non-psychiatric disorders that may present with psychiatric symptoms. We direct our clients to address the non-psychiatric issues in tandem with the psychiatric issues impeding qualtity of life.  As professionals who are expert in interprofessional collaboration , Psych APRN’s  are highly qualified to communicate with the professionals in medicine and neuroscience to direct care and treatment of our clients with serious neurological co-morbid disorders.
