#010 MRI'S and The FASD Brain with Dr. Catherine Lebel
Mar 02, 2020 Episode 10
Jeff Noble

Meet Dr. Catherine Lebel as she describes her introduction into FASD and MRI’s as “serendipitous”.

Catherine and her team study people’s brains and how they develop and grow -- specifically trying to figure out how the brains of neuro-typical individuals may be different from those who have experienced prenatal alcohol exposure.  

In this week's episode we talk about: 

-Is it necessary, important or even helpful to get an MRI for an individual with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder?
-Can the FASD brain grow?
-Can you re-write an FASD brain like you can with other brain injuries?
-Is there a catch up period in development with individuals with FASD?
-Is there any good research about supplements helping the FASD brain?
-Do therapy’s like neuro-feedback have any noticeable and long term effects?

We will wrap up by talking about a new study Dr. Lebel's team is currently looking for applicants for... the study is about the brain and mental health. Exciting stuff!
