Concussion and Alzheimer's Patients Show Similar Brain Changes - TIME

Concussion and Alzheimer's Patients Show Similar Brain Changes - TIME | Social Support for Dementia in the Developmentally Disabled | Scoop.it
Concussion and Alzheimer's Patients Show Similar Brain Changes
TIME
Damage from concussions and the progressive deterioration of neurons in Alzheimer's look similar on brain scans, according to the latest study, and produce similar symptoms as well.
Althaea Day Programs's insight:

"The study also showed that concussion patients suffered from the same sleep-wake disturbances that plague Alzheimer’s patients. These problems tend to make other cognitive issues, such as memory lapses and changes in behavior, worse" The correlation is getting a significant amount of attention now but what is baffling is that after years of watching the decline in boxers - why are we so slow in watching out for our other athletes?

Does Articulating Your Corporate Values Matter?

Does Articulating Your Corporate Values Matter? | Social Support for Dementia in the Developmentally Disabled | Scoop.it

Corporate values are commonplace. They are stated on corporate literature and easily found on company websites so that visitors can get a sense of what is important to the organisation.  Stating values is also a way to shape internal stakeholders’ understanding  of the company and an attempt to influence their behaviours.

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, July 5, 2015 3:06 PM

Values are always more valuable when they are lived rather than relegated to a shelf for display.  Too many companies values are on shelves only.

Jill Pineault's curator insight, July 13, 2015 10:33 AM

Social Responsibility is a core value at Red Payments and we seek to attract talent with similar values.  Through donations to charities with each new merchant that is brought on and environmentally conscious to reduce carbon footprints are two of our main values.

Dana K. Dwyer's curator insight, August 25, 2015 4:14 AM

Begin by articulating your personal values.
