An interview with TIRR’s Dr. Mark Sherer, director of the Texas TBI Model System

Dr. Mark Sherer, principal investigator of the Texas Traumatic Brain Injury Model System at TIRR has an excellent interview in the Atlantic Monthly. Fred Vox interviews Dr. Sherer on the insights he and his team have discovered in treating people with TBI and their families. The article focuses in particular on the rehabilitation of Rep Gabrielle Giffords and what she and her family may experience as they work towards reintegration:
