Lecture 2: Impact of ABI on the Person, Their Life and Their Family, and the Support Worker Role
The second lecture of the series explores the impact of ABI on the person and their life, as well as that of their family. This lecture will note the importance of remembering that everyone with an ABI is unique. With some areas of the brain affected by injury and others…
Lecture 4: Understanding Behaviour Change after ABI
Lecture four, alongside lectures five and six, focuses on behaviour change after ABI. It commences with understanding ways behaviour may change after ABI, defines challenging behaviour / behaviours of concern, and considers why the presence of challenging behaviour is a key reason for poor long-term outcomes. As workers, we can…
Lecture 5: Proactive Approaches to Managing Challenging Behaviour after ABI
The fifth lecture of the series is the second lecture focussing on challenging behaviour / behaviours of concern. It will look at the 'A' in the ABC model (i.e. antecedent), focussing on the importance of both background factors and triggers. It will consider why antecedents are so important in understanding…
Lecture 6: Understanding the Function of Challenging Behaviour after ABI
The sixth lecture is the final lecture of the series, and the third lecture focussing on challenging behaviour / behaviours of concern. It will look at understanding the function of challenging behaviour after ABI. This lecture will consider the 'C' in the ABC model, and look at what the term…
Going the Distance: Journeys of Discovery - Survivors of Brain Injuries Share Their Stories
Four survivors take us inside the experience of traumatic brain injury (TBI) to reveal their personal stories of devastation, heroism and hope.

Discovering the Human Brain - New Pathways to Neuroscience
Part of the Series: Neuroscience
Using the resources of the UCLA Brain Mapping Center, this film illustrates the development of neuroscience from its classical reliance on information from brain injuries and autopsies through the new insights discovered with electronic microscopes, EEG equipment, PET scans and MRI machines. Examples of current research that utilize these tools…
Human Brain Development - Nature and Nurture
Part of the Series: Neuroscience
The fascinating interplay of genetic predispositions and experience in the development of the brain after birth is demonstrated in this film produced at the Brain Development Laboratory at the University of Oregon. Three profiles of plasticity are depicted with compelling film sequences of behavioral, MRI and EEG research into the…
The Emotional Brain - An Introduction to Affective Neuroscience
Part of the Series: Neuroscience
Emotions color our everyday individual existence and shape all aspects of our interpersonal and intellectual experiences. In this film, animations and fMRI images introduce students to what we now know about the sub-cortical emotional circuits in the brain and chemical processes that produce our emotional responses and contribute to our…
Brain Fitness
PBS
The Brain Fitness Program is based on the brain's ability to change and adapt, even rewire itself. In the past two years, a team of scientists has developed computer-based stimulus sets that drive beneficial chemical, physical and functional changes in the brain.
