Traumatic Brain Injury Guide E-Book

Nearly all of the survivors of a traumatic head injury and their families with whom I have worked have had one complaint: There is nothing written that explains head injury in clear, easy to understand language. Most say the available material is too medical or too difficult to read. The goal of this online book is to better prepare the head injured person and family for the long road ahead.

Encephalitis

Made famous by the awe-inspiring Dr. Oliver Sacks, encephalitis lethargica is one of many disorders in the group of encephalitis.  From the movie Awakenings, which was one of the most popular medical influenced movies of all time, encephalitis is called “the sleeping sickness.”

There are more disorders, however; to encephalitis then encephalitis lethargica.    It behooves us not to forget that there are those out there still suffering from any form of encephalitis.  The Encephalitis Society was established in 1994, in response to the overwhelming lack of information on encephalitis for people affected by the condition and their need for mutual support in coming to terms with its consequences. The operating name of the organisation was changed to the Encephalitis Society – action for support, awareness and research in May 2003 to reflect the wider breadth of the work undertaken.

Papers on consciousness and philosophy of mind

The neurophilosopher and mind hacks have already pointed these out, but it always helps to spread the word. David Chalmers and David Bourget from the Australian National University (ANU) have compiled an impressive list of free online papers on the philosophy of mind, the philosophy of cognitive science, and the science of consciousness. When I say impressive I mean IMPRESSIVE! – over 18000 references in total, with close to 5000 references on consciousness alone. Visit the full list here, and the consciousness specific list here. I welcome feedback from readers who have a head for philosophy of mind (excuse the pun) as to the quality and breadth of these resources.
