Evening with Dr Peter Jenkins
In our most recent “An Evening With” session, FAABI welcomed Dr Peter Jenkins to speak about his recent research. Dr Peter Jenkins is a Neurologist who currently works at St Mary’s Hospital within Imperial Healthcare Trust. Dr Jenkins and his team are running a trial to see if they can improve cognitive problems following a traumatic brain injury with the medication Methylphenidate, more commonly referred to as Ritalin. Following a brief overview of this study, Dr Jenkins welcomed many questions from the audience and answered them the best he could. There was a sense that this was very helpful to the many people who attended.
Recent research studies that Dr Jenkins has been a part of include:
- Improve memory and concentration after brain injury
- Brain stimulation through electrical stimulation
- Imaging study’s i.e MRI scanning of brain to view changes that occur
Following Dr Jenkin’s talk, Shoaeb introduced a series of sessions which are specifically designed for family members, friends and carers of those with an acquired brain injury.
These will be based on four areas:
- Living with someone with an ABI
- Emotional Lability
