Neuro rehab can change lives

Bengaluru healthcare professionals, in collaboration with PRS Neurosciences and Swasthya Arogya Foundation, have launched a neurosciences ecosystem to promote awareness about functional neurosciences and neuro-rehabilitation. Dr. Sharan Srinivasan emphasized the limited knowledge on neuro rehabilitation compared to other medical fields. The initiative aims to alleviate the burden on families of neurologically challenged individuals, showcasing how technology can enable them to regain some independence. A dedicated software has been introduced for brain mapping and creating a neurologic metaverse. This initiative represents a significant step in leveraging technology for neuroscientific advancements and improving the lives of affected individuals.

Rare case: Black fungus only in patient’s brain

A 48-year-old woman in Gauribidanur, India, recovered from COVID-19 but developed stroke-like symptoms post-discharge. Upon examination at a Bengaluru hospital, doctors discovered an unusual case of mucormycosis, or black fungus, affecting only her brain, not the typical entry points like eyes or nose. This unprecedented case in Karnataka prompted a brain surgery at Bhagawan Mahaveer Jain Hospital to remove fungal debris. Despite lacking common mucormycosis risk factors, such as diabetes or use of steroids, the patient is now recovering. Dr. Sharan Srinivasan, the neurosurgeon, highlights the uniqueness of the case and the absence of standard predisposing factors. Click on the logo to read more.

This musician strummed a guitar during his own brain surgery

Abhishek Prasad, a guitarist in India, played his guitar during a four-hour brain surgery to correct musical dystonia, a neurological condition causing cramping in his fingers while playing. Dr. Sharan Srinivasan performed "radio-frequency ablation" under local anesthesia, using the patient's real-time feedback as he played the guitar to pinpoint the affected brain circuits. Musical dystonia, impacting about 1% of musicians, results from misfiring brain circuits. Prasad, who couldn't play for 20 months, described the post-surgery experience as "magical." Awake brain surgery, with origins dating back to ancient times, allowed precise treatment without causing pain in the brain itself.
