We have two amazing speakers joining us in October and you don’t want to miss this topic. What does damage to the
frontal lobes look like? Dr. Cisneros, a clinical neuropsychologist specializing in brain injuries, will discuss how frontal lobe
damage is the hallmark of TBI. She will review the functions associated with the frontal lobe, and how these are related to
behavioral and emotional control and personality change. She will also share with us the issues related to the frequency of
depression, anxiety, impulse control, substance use post-TBI, and how TBI is often related to significant difficulties within
relationships. Dr. Kaplan, specializing in neuro-rehabilitation will update us some of the advances in technologies in the
treatment of TBI.
