To expedite our vision of Healthy Brains for All, One Mind works to confirm a research paradigm that can be replicated across all brain health conditions; from Alzheimer’s, autism and depression, to schizophrenia, bipolar and beyond.
BRAIN HEALTH CONDITIONS
Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks (pasted from NIH).
Anxiety disorders involve more than the temporary worry. The anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time, significantly interfering with the person’s daily activities and relationships.
Autism is a complex neurobehavioral condition that includes impairments in social interaction and developmental language and communication skills combined with rigid, repetitive behaviors
Also known as manic-depressive illness, Bipolar Disorder is a brain health condition that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks.
Depression is a term that includes disorders such as major depression, seasonal affective disorder, and persistent depressive disorder. Depression negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act, potentially leaving you to feel hopeless and alone.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is a common, long-lasting anxiety disorder where the person has uncontrollable, reoccurring thoughts (obsessions) and behaviors (compulsions) that he or she feels the urge to repeat over and over.
Post-Traumatic Stress is a mental health problem that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, such as combat, a natural disaster, sexual assault, trauma or the loss of a loved one.
Schizophrenia is a serious brain disorder characterized by the combined presence of certain symptoms or the experience of being out of touch with reality and lack of interest in the outside world.
TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
The CDC defines a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury.
