As a Neuroscientist I can help explain how concussions/TBI can alter neurotransmission leading to disruptions in memory, mood and sleep. We can discuss what new developments for treatment are available. We can have a completely confidential discussion about: concerns you might have with symptoms; drug history; what questions to ask your doctor and what medications to request and which ones to avoid.
