This #TBITuesday we want to salute San Diego neuropsychiatrist and SDBIF Professional Advisory Council member, Dr. Mohammed Ahmed!
Dr. Ahmed is a specialist in both Brain Injury Medicine and Memory Disorders/Dementia. HE has been uniquely trained from a neurology, psychiatry, and rehab perspective in treating veterans with TBI and former NFL players. Dr. Ahmed’s niche is in understanding the connection between TBI/concussion, and neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and CTE. He is even one of the Founders of the Kaizen Brain Center in La Jolla.
Dr. Ahmed specializes as an expert in the treatment of various brain disorders using Neuromodulation/Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). Recently, he published his research on these treatments for depression in mild to moderate traumatic brain injury. You can read about this on his bio page on the SDBIF website: https://sdbif.org/index/staff/mohammed-ahmed-m-d/
We are soooo lucky to have him not only as part of our tight-knit San Diego brain injury community...but as an advisor to SDBIF. He is an invaluable resource to all of us and we are proud to highlight him this week!
Exciting news out of the USC Viterbi School of Engineering...there have been recent advances in device technology allowing more regions of the brain to be explored safely. Which means we might be getting ever closer to a complete map of the brain!
The San Diego Brain Injury Foundation collaborated on a book called, "Journey Towards Recovery: A Brain Injury Guide for Familes". You can read more about and find the link to purchase it on the SDBIF website. (It is offered in Spanish too): https://sdbif.org/resources/brain-injury-guide/
This guide has been written for anyone who has been touched by brain injury, whether mild or severe, family or friend. It is the goal of this guide to provide survivors, caregivers and loved ones with step-by-step tools they need to travel the incredible journey of recovery.
We want to make sure people have access to as many resources as possible to help all those affected by brain injury.
