Jared Heyman's sister went from a young healthy teen to someone who had to drop out of college because of depression and a fatigue so profound she could only watch TV or play solitaire. She would also wake up several times a night with nightmares and cold sweats. Eventually, she became suicidal.Over the course of 3 years, she saw 16 different medical specialists (all seen individually) racked up $100,000 in medical bills to no avail. They couldn’t figure it out. She was what you really don’t ever want to be – a tough case. Finally, the diagnosis was made. It had a rare disease that only affects 15,000 females. She was treated and is doing fine now, but her story inspired her brother to do something to help other people like her.Jared Heyman founded CrowdMed to crowdsource medical diagnoses.

Can You Really Increase Your Brain Power with Games

Can you really use games to increase your brain power? Every day we are bombarded with messages that suggest we can. AARP offers their members (all seniors) a discount on the Posit Science "brain fitness" program. Lumosity ads exhort us to "challenge your brain with scientifically designed training. According to their website, the program is designed by neuroscientists. A quick trip to Amazon yields dozens of books all claiming to help you increase your brain power. To explore what is fact and what is wishful thinking, Pat Salber, MD (@docweighsin) talks to Dov Michaeli, MD, PhD (@dovmichaeli) to get his perspective on increasing brain power. Can it be done? Do games work? If so any specific types of games? If not, what else can we do to maintain or regain lost functioning? This should be a fascinating discussion.
