Psychiatry Professor Teaching Those Suffering from Brain Injuries to Relearn Emotions

An exciting new study from the University of Buffalo shows that those suffering from even a mild traumatic brain injury may be able to relearn emotional recognitions. Patients in the study are shown pictures of human reactions and then asked to explain the emotions that go along with the reaction. Studies have found those suffering from a brain injury have a hard time recognizing sadness, depression, or fear. The study is aimed at testing the recognition abilities of those suffering from a brain injury and developing mechanisms by which to improve this ability.
