From researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine we get a set of insights into how the brain reacts to traumatic injury and whether science has been paying too little attention to the impact of inflammation in the brain. Joining us by phone is Dr. Alan Faden, a neurologist and professor of anesthesiology. He and his colleague David Loane, assistant professor of anesthesiology, published research on this issue last week.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
