Damage and Recovery: Stories of Brain Injury


Two accounts of brain injury and near-death experiences on this hour of PsychTalk. Find out what it is like to face death and come out the other side a different person–or the same person? Listen and let us know.

First we hear from Dan Rhema, now an artist. He has been profiled in Forbes, he has written a book and our audio comes from a longer interview by Dr. Robert Rose.

Then we hear Ryan Brady tell his story. Watch it told visually below:
