Brain injury research helps to develop treatments and rehabilitative medicine
Brain injury research helps to develop treatments and rehabilitative medicine. This week there has been a scientific discovery which may help scientists and doctors in further understanding brain injuries.
Ötzi, the iceman who was discovered mummified in the Alps in 1991 and is believed to be over 5,000 years old, has been found to have suffered a brain injury prior to his death. The discovery was made by scientists using a specialist technique which extracted protein from a pin-head sized piece of tissue from his brain.
David Robinson, a specialist brain injury solicitor at Thompsons Solicitors, comments: “Brain injuries are very complex and the more we are able to learn about them the greater the opportunities for treatment and effective rehabilitation. I daily see the effects of individuals who have suffered brain injuries and wherever help can come from it's welcome. I hope that the research into Ötzi will continue to be supported and may help us to better understand the nature and development of brain injuries”.
