Electrical Brain Stimulation May Help People Speak Again After a Stroke

A new study suggests that electrical stimulation of the brain may help people recover their speech after a stroke. Up to one-third of stroke survivors have aphasia, a condition which impairs their ability to speak, read, write or understand language.

Cerebral Palsy is all about Incredible Adaptability

Stephanie Hammerman is a case in point. She became the first certified CrossFit coach with cerebral palsy. In her interview with CNN, she said, "If you would have told me that in a year I would be lifting weights over my head, flipping tires and coaching this sport, I wouldn't have believed you, but this is my reality. As an adaptive athlete and coach, I see and do things differently than most, but that doesn't make my desire to be great any weaker. In CrossFit when the term "RX'd" is used it means an athlete has done something as prescribed. My weights and rep scheme may never be RX, but my effort always will be. If this last year has taught me anything, it's to embrace every challenge that comes your way because you never know when that challenge is going to turn into great opportunity".
