Opening Up About Aneurysm
Actress Tamala Jones plays medical examiner Lanie Parish on ABC’s hit show Castle. What most people don’t know is that fourteen years ago, at the age of 23, she survived a brain aneurysm, which she kept a secret until this past year. Recently, she began sharing her experience publicly and working with The Brain Aneurysm Foundation to help raise awareness of the symptoms.
 
Staying Sharp 
How you choose to spend your leisure time probably has an impact on the brain as it ages, according to a recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. We’ll look closely at what the evidence says about activities such as learning a second language for long-term cognitive health, and discuss established strategies for cognitive health and prevention of dementia, such as keeping cardiovascular risk factors in check.


Globe Trotters on Four Wheels
Michael Glen, Carole Zoom, and Justin Skeesuck have much more in common than the fact that they use wheelchairs to get around. Glen (who is paraplegic), Carole Zoom (who has muscular dystrophy), and Justin Skeesuck (who has multifocal acquired motor axonal neuropathy) share an insatiable love of travel and adventure. We asked these three road warriors to share their wisdom on hitting the road with a neurologic disability.
