I have a BA in Psychology, and an MA in Special Education. I worked in disability, early childhood disability, and for mental health prior to my incident. (For some reason I knew what to do, but couldn't move. I now have limited movement. All of this is typed with one finger.)

The videos I've seen submitted in the past don't involve a neuro concept applied to a real person. I think I have something. The concept is neuroplasticity. If u or a friend on here is a member, I don't have to search. Whether or not if I win anything doesn't matter. I win by entering. It says something that a person with a brain injury can go that far.
I'll take suggestions, suggestions, suggestions!
If something does happen, u can go to San Diego for me. I'll write an acceptance speech that u can read. It's like the Golden Globes.
