The Ghost in my Brain: How a Concussion Stole my Life and How the Science of Brain PLasticity Helped Me Get it Back
|Author:||Clark A. Elliott|
In 1999, Dr Clark Elliott suffered a concussion when his car was rear-ended. Overnight his life changed from that of a rising professor to a humbled man struggling to get through a single day. In one final effort to resume a normal life, Elliott crossed paths with two brilliant Chicago-area research clinicians who used cutting-edge therapies to try and help Dr Elliott. Within weeks, the ghost of who he had been returned. The Ghost in My Brain is also an unforgettable record of recovery, one that offers new hope to those suffering from brain trauma.
