In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
I'm at a loss to know why this is not common practice when we have MRIs in regular use for a vast number of prognosis/diagnosis of patients.
Our behaviours stem from both nature and nurture so it would make sense to assimilate scan and therapy.
He’s speaking the full truth here about psychiatric treatments. I went to one and it didn’t help me at all. He never bothered to do a brain scan and only took some ramblings about mood swings from me..
The entire Team of practitioners who work with the medical profession are educated to treat patience. Doctors are working for money. The pharmaceutical who produce drugs, tables, pills etc: as the case may be according the the individual diagonal medical problem. The professional team will feed out the family where financial resources is concern. If for example a man come back from the war zone, bones are broken and many other medical problem's occurs help is given. On a continuous basis the individual have brain problems , for example, depression, hearing voices, pain on a constant basis. Tablets, Drugs, pills are given with many side effects. No one explain reality. Only a load tragedy's from one to the next of medical problem's occurs. The fact of the matter professional have be Challenge for their poor choices of Care given to the people for their present day lifestyle.
Do you think that rewiring the brain is better than surgery in the case of one’s brain not matching one’s gender? I know that ‘conversion therapy camps’ for homosexuality Is controversial, but this study suggests it’s possible to change the way a brain works!
Jumping from Fs and Ds to As and Bs I don’t know with medicine and treatment if they can achieve , if a kid will not learn to add 1+1 I don’t catch how with medicine will reach to do 11+11. With Many kids when they reach to 11 and 12 years they face difficulties in maths for example is that there maths of previous classes were not taught to them.

He is a GREAT marketeer! SPECT, MRI , fMRI PET and even CT are all great tools -- and psychiatrists ought to use them more often! He's chosen some of the best of the 83k scans to present here and the story he tells is a great one but it is over-stated. Treating people with behavioural or psychiatric programmes won't reverse dementia or cure encephalitis -- and many behavioural and cognitive problems don't result in brain scan abnormalities. But it is always worthwhile trying!
At age 7 I had my first traumatic brain injury. a horse stepped on my face blacked out for only a few seconds but I woke up with epilepsy a week later.
At 12 I had a radical to right temporal lobectomy to correct the partial seizures. (They took out around one cubic centimeter of temporal tissue nicking the occipital lobe).
within about 12 hours of waking up from the medically induced coma after surgery I realized a few things I have a little bit of blindness in the left front corner of my eyes, my head feels funny, and I can't remember anything.
I knew who my mother was, I knew how to ride a bike, I could walk (well save the jelly legs from two weeks in a coma). But I didn't know why I liked my mother. I didn't know why I was supposed to be proud of a trophy in my room. I had memory but I didn't have any memories. over the years I found the best way to describe it is like I was watching a movie or reading a book those things happened sure I knew they happened but I didn't feel them they weren't my experiences.
fast-forward through 8 years of Messi adolescence where you can't make human connection cuz you don't remember what love was. I was diagnosed with ADHD impulse issues and ODD.
I lift up my life with the weird combination of two traumatic brain injuries as well as at least three minor brain injuries or concussions that knocked me out that I'm aware of over the span of about 5 years between ages 15 and 20.
but something miraculous happened around age 2021 I started being able to remember things. Somebody put their finger to their forehead and bow down like a unicorn which was exactly what my elementary school nurse did and all of a sudden after 10 years of no Memories the name Kelly Bamford came to my head all of a sudden I remembered what the nurse's office look like in my elementary school I remember all the funny goofy jokes you used to tell me I remember her being effectively my best friend in elementary school cuz nobody likes the kid with seizures. all the sudden it came flooding back to me and I remember thinking shock and awe that I could remember something I thought all my memories have been physically removed from my skull with that brain surgery my recall was broken not my memories.
Fast forward about a year after that and I have another incidents very similar the city-wide parade came around and all of a sudden I remember what middle school me in Middle School best friend did at the fair.
I got these flashes of experiences and they felt like they were mine and not just reading from a book.
After 10 years with Advanced retrograde amnesia never feeling human and complete because I had zero memories accept 9/11/01 before the age of 12 (and very broken memories from 12-15).
My brain healed itself through will and time decent psychotherapy and will I started remembering things that I thought were lost forever.
Your brain can and will fix itself if you teach it to and you care for it properly.
All the doctors I have had in my life were no more qualified than a witchdoctor. To them, hearing the health issues over and over again from their patients is boring and impersonal. You have to love what you do which enables you to be interested and think outside the box. The new generation of doctors will be worse, they just won't get it.
I normally don't comment on these, but have personal experience with the amen clinic and actually Dr Amen himself. 17 years ago I read his book (Change your Brain Change your life) by chance and realized he could possibly help our family. My husband suffered from anxiety and ADHD, our daughter and son also had ADHD and Dr Amen diagnosed my son with ODD.Our life was chaos, and our son was failing school. The Amen clinic not only diagnosed these issues, they accurately prescribed treatment and today our family is doing great!
Why you shouldn’t use drugs? They damage your brain.... Stop using the word drug. If you shouldn’t use drugs that means you cannot take tylenol or antibiotics. What drugs are we talking about? Does tylenol damage the brain?? You can go to the drug store and buy drugs. We shouldn’t use those? Stop using the word ‘drug’. Such an empty word.
Such a sweeping indictment of 'drugs', from someone who does research and holds a professional title that should be more empirical and critical in thoughts. I understand that it was just a passing remark. But such a sweeping one. I do agree that the brain is pliable
1) How does he “reconstruct” brains? What’s the technique? Never told in the video.
2) If brain reconstruction is so successful, will it be use for more eugenic programs? That’s scary.
The process should be explain
Oh no... I am a 15 year old that fell down the stairs when I was 3
Now I walked up stairs with both feet on one step and repeat. Tbh it wasn't really traumatic, but now I have a stitch over my right eye.
Dr. Amen perhaps the best-known—as well as arguably the most controversial—psychiatrist in the nation. Over the years, he has built a psychiatric empire, with a chain of six Amen Clinics across the country, a steady stream of mega-selling books, a substantial media arm that produces programs shown on PBS member stations nationwide and a business promoting and selling proprietary nutritional supplements. It would be remarkable for any doctor to achieve the degree of notoriety that belongs to Dr. Amen. But what is perhaps most striking about his remarkable success is that it is built on claims, most notably the extraordinary, near-miraculous benefits of SPECT, which have been dismissed as medically worthless by a veritable who’s who of eminent, mainstream psychiatrists, neurologists and brain-imaging specialists.
Many neurologists question the value of SPECT scans.SPECT is “spectacularly meaningless,” Daniel Carlat, professor of psychiatry at Tufts University, told The Washington Post in 2012. “Basically he’s conning people,” Jeffrey Lieberman, head of the psychiatry department at the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, told me in a recent interview at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, expressing a sentiment that I heard from at least a half dozen other specialists I interviewed at major universities and research institutions.
Beware. The American College of Radiology, the neuroradiological society of N A, and all credible journals and peers denounce this as mere charlatan. He promotes his business for lucrative, not real scientific value

Thats merely an excuse. the pros outway the cons. one succesful scan could lead to alot more preventative measures than the damage it would cause. otherwise we wouldnt use this method at all. the real reason is weve got ourselves into a systemic nightmare, where profit is more favourable than truly saving lives.
The US over invested in CT scanners and underinvested in MRIs. CTs expose you to a lot of radiation, so you can only get them every few years. MRIs in the US are marketed as expensive and reserved for the top consumers, "VIP Patients", as they are called in hospitals.
There's also an aspect of the US medical system which bends over backwards to avoid confirming the endemic abuse culture via medical technology. In the US, doctors are class warriors and gatekeepers to people's health and well being; they are a kind of informal judge, jury, and executioner that decide who "deserves" care and who "deserves" to die slow and painful deaths.

I got my brain scanned at the Amen clinics a couple years ago. Seeing the activity of my brain really opened my eyes and helped me look at the bigger picture. It made me realize what was really going on. I've been struggling with mental health issues for most of my life and at their clinic I felt a lot of hope for the future of my mental health. Thank you for being a maverick.
Just 5 mins of his talk made me decide to take my dream of becoming a doctor very seriously, no hesitations, no self-doubt, not anymore. I may graduate at 45 and probably be broke, but I'll be a doctor and be able to help people the rest of my life.
lol , I call bluff.
"reverse brain"?? "brain-smart program"??
nice recommendation to brain-scan, nothing more. they already do so, which means you actually said nothing smart, just made a commercial.
I'll even raise , why TED doesn't present the persona who make the show?
am I expected to trust those randoms you shove to my screen?
[went a bit to web = "Amen Clinics", well-established company in this field. he's theory is a theory, or commercial, not a proven medical solution].
I'll throw u a bone , ted, go bring an "otherside" persona from the field, let him comment. want the public to listen? Truth before information.
Changing peoples brains to conform them to the norm id a dangerous embarkment. We truly have no need to be better students in the miseducatiion systems of indoctrination. Anyone who tells you this is after your soul. Only mindless conformists are proud of the capacity to pay taxes as he so flagrantly bragged of his poor spiritually mutilated nephew. I think (operative word is think) that I'd wrather die right now of a brain tumor, than live mt whole life as a normal unconscious sheep. There are things in life far worse than death.
8;11 is correct. The few homeless people i befriended would never tell you this about themselves. But their other homeless friends would. One guy who came from a well to do family in a nearby city could not deal with their relative's mental problem. So this guy just wondered the streets, drank himself to death (DOD 2011). Sad but, how true but the general public and especially politicians do not understand between mental illness untreated and homelessness.
Wow. What a revelation. To think that brain damage is so common and so visible gives me new perspective; to think about the future the way this man does. Inspiring to say the least. What an example of noble ambition. What a helpful human being he is.
