MBF Bioscience Featured on Vermont Public Television

MBF Bioscience was featured in an episode of Emerging Science,  a television series that features Vermont scientists who expand human knowledge and help solve problems around the world.   The episode explored the link between traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress disorder in military personnel coming back from war.

MBF Bioscience President Jack Glaser and Staff Scientist Susan Hendricks give us some perspective from a research standpoint as they briefly address the ways in which learning more about the injured brain could help find a cure. How does a brain injury affect the neurons in the affected area? Are there fewer neurons than there were before?  Has the shape of the neurons changed? Are there fewer connections between neurons than there were before injury? There is still so much more to explore.
