In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  • meganverne
    meganverne 1 month ago @pandroidgaxie I would like to argue that perhaps they do not use the brain scan to tell you WHICH situation your in (depression, schizophrenia, etc.) rather, to help with the medication of someone they show what type of activity the brain has to best match what could help? I believe they still use the therapy to determine what major issues are and maybe with the combo can tell what would work the best. I also argue that not all problems needs medication and can heal with time and traditional therapy.

  • David Kruse
    David Kruse 1 month ago @mackerel69 you arent supposed to think about that
  • David Kruse
    David Kruse 1 month ago (edited) @Gonzalo Herrera big companies would love this. why do you assume pharmaceutical companies wouldnt want this? These scans cost several thousand dollars themselves and the machines are made by big time medical companies. Plus if the scan show abnormalities most doctors would prescribe medications. I will add that this doctor charges several thousand dollars himself to run and evaluate these scans. This is not exact science and his treatment methods are no proven. This guy is a saleman and it sounds like you bought his sales pitch.
  • David Kruse

  • Bogdan 12
    Bogdan 12 1 month ago Yes, but it's risky. There is some radiation involved, that could do unnecesary harm. Medicine acts with the principle of doing something harmfull for the result of getting the pacient better( x.rey, or even taking a simple blood sample. That is a harm that you put yourself through to get a result on your condition). So. Doing these scans are beter for people who have some simptoms and our responsability as citisens to see these simptoms at others that we care about. Only these people with simptoms need to take these scans ( because of brain iradiation) Sorry for my english.

  • Wendy Hill
    Wendy Hill 2 months ago @cellogirl11RW I agree the drugs do not treat everyone the same...actions and reactions vary greatly. A shot in the dark really then they start layering pills and allow your average/general Doctor to Baker Act people of all ages and shoot them up with drugs that do not work. All they want or are doing is to immobilized people.
