Guest: Lisa Shulman, Professor of Neurology, University of Maryland, Author of “Before and After Loss: A Neurologist’s Perspective on Loss, Grief, and Our Brain” The symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include confusion, trouble concentrating, moving clumsily, memory loss and changes in sleep and mood. All of that sounded familiar to neurologist Lisa Shulman – not because she’d hit her head, but because her husband had just died of cancer. What if a traumatic loss like that is a form of emotional brain injury, she wondered? The answers she uncovered form the basis of Dr. Shulman’s new book, “Before and After Loss: A Neurologist’s Perspective on Loss, Grief, and our Brain.”
