Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.
My back ground story is here:

The Personality Trait That Makes People Happier - generosity

What else is your doctor and therapist suggesting for your happiness? What fucking protocol are they following for your happiness? Or are they incompetent and have none?

The Personality Trait That Makes People Happier - generosity 

Brain scans reveal that just a little of this personality trait boosts happiness.
Even a small amount of generosity towards others makes people happier, psychological research finds.
In fact, merely promising to be more generous is enough to trigger changes in our brain that lead to greater happiness.
People in the study did not need to be extremely generous to see the benefits to happiness levels.
Dr Philippe Tobler, one of the study’s authors, said:
“You don’t need to become a self-sacrificing martyr to feel happier.
Just being a little more generous will suffice.”
Brain scans revealed that even the intent to be generous was linked to activity in the ventral striatum, an area important in the feeling of happiness.
Dr Tobler said:
“It is remarkable that intent alone generates a neural change before the action is actually implemented.
Promising to behave generously could be used as a strategy to reinforce the desired behavior, on the one hand, and to feel happier, on the other.”
People were also asked about their happiness levels before and after the experiment.
