Increasing Our Understanding Of The Brain

Nov 27, 2012

While it may be well established that our brains command our actions, it’s becoming increasingly clear that we can have greater control over the message.

Increasingly, research shows people can take steps to protect the health of their brain and as one aspect of that, may be able to sidetrack compulsive behaviors such as eating disorders.

The Missouri Eating Disorders Association is one agency which provides education, resources and advocacy to bring understanding and support to those treating or affected by the disease.

On Tuesday night, brain researcher and author of “The Brain Fix: What’s the Matter with Your Gray Matter,” Dr. Ralph Carson, speaks at Washington University’s Siegle Hall.

Host Don Marsh talked with Carson as well as Lynn Stark, a clinical nurse specialist and program director at McCallum Place, and Annie Seal, whose daughter Katie was a former patient of McCallum Place. 

McCallum Place is in Webster Groves and offers eating disorder treatment programs.
