    I appreciated Dr. Amen's presentation until when he connects himself to Church and Rick W. He sounds convincing, but I will trust his work when I see the results. I have little trust in medical professionals who align themselves with religious leaders and celebrities because they make themselves look like advertisement showmen.

    The size of the brain varies among all living things, even between men and women, and the size of the brain is not related to its development. The more folds on the brain, the more the brain develops. The folds in his brain are related to the development of the brain.

    If hes so interested in healing people why does his clinics not accept Insurance. Who can afford the type of treatment he's talking about is extremely expensive and even more so at his clinics. I think he's onto something regarding finding the reason or cause of this conditions but as far as treating brain's I don't know! Although, the truth is he's getting rich trying.

  • lancelot1953

    Do your research! I highly recommend for viewers to check reviews (medical reviews) available on the web about Dr Amen's claims. Review the patient's reviews from the NY clinic (the closest to my location). Read the Observer's, Washington Post's, and a several comments by such entities as the America Psychiatric Association and the American Academy of Neurology. The SPECT scans which were developed 30 years ago have not lived to expectations or not matured (according to radiologists and neurologists) and current state of the art is the use of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and PET (Positron Emission Tomography) which unlike Dr. Amen's scans, are covered by most insurance programs (for the right reasons).
    Dr. Amen runs several clinics throughout the states. He shows in another TEDx Talk video the scan of his nephew suffering from behavioral problems which were (mis)diagnosed/treated were in fact caused by a brain cyst identified by Dr. Amen's SPECT scan - Current MRIs and CT scans would have also likely showed the same damage with much better resolution and been ordered prior to any brain surgery intervention. Dr. Amen's scans of football players' brain dysfunction has also been published years ago, using other technologies.
    Dr. Amen has been reluctant (or refused) to submit his studies/claims to peer reviews and double-bind studies (which is the current most impartial way to validate a test, technology, and drug effectiveness).
    Dr. Amen promotes healthy lifestyle, weight loss, avoidance of trauma, drugs, alcohol, control of diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), exercise, etc., and taking his food/vitamin supplements (~$90/month). This is nothing new and lifestyle modifications have highly been recommended since the eighties.
    Contrary to some claims and popular beliefs, most physicians are dedicated professionals not under the thumb of pharmaceutical companies. Yes, we are humans and not "gods", we do not do miracles (it may happen sometimes but that is usually with Divine intervention). I am not saying that his approach is not good, I am saying that his approach is not shared by the top scholars in his neuro-psychiatry and his claim of "restoring" the brain function has not been demonstrated by valid modern studies.
    After all, it is your body, your brain and your money - I highly recommend that interested prospective clients do their research or discuss it with a sympathetic physician or medical professional. Ciao, L (MD, AAFP, CFPC)

      :)) sanki türklere göre değil gibi video. Sonuçta videonun sonunda anlıyorsun ki adam daha sağlıklı bir hayat için ilk önce beyninin düzelmesi, bunun için de en önemli şeyin düzenli bir şekilde kiliseye gitmen gerektiği ve yanında diğer herkesin senelerden beri bildiği sağlıklı yaşam için neler yapman gerektiği ile şeyler anlatıyor sonuçta. Bir hristiyan olsaydım vede kiliseye orada dinleyenler kadar gitmiyor olsaydım konuşma sonrasında gözümde bir damla yaş ta olurdu. :))) Allahı' ma şükürler olsun, elhamdürillah değilim. :)))))) Konuşma belli bir kilise için yazılmış reklam gibi. Kutluyor ve ayakta alkışlıyorum. Ama dikkatli bakınca kendiliğinden hemen anlaşılıyor. :)) Ügünüm... Araştırmayı da Kilise yaptırmış gibi, yani finansmanını.....

    I’m going to pray for him, since he asked.
    He has all the answers. I smell a man who studied psychiatry as a method to fix himself. I’m unsure if he feels fixed or not, but I do know he lacks empathy and only expresses his thoughts, which means he isn’t fixed at all.
    We can scan brains and make judgements. Let’s not just look at a diagnosis and a fancy scan (all highlighted;) let’s look at a human being and what we need to do to hel them.

    As I got older I slept less. Simply not tired.
    "Is it true?" Byron Katie. Love it. Since this is a TED talk, I have to ask Dr. Amen, "is this true?"
    Don't believe everything you hear. Exercise your brain, think. I will go to other experts to see if these brain scans are revealing enough to draw the conclusions of Dr. Amen.
    Healthy body, healthy mind. This should be common knowledge. People tend to ignore ancient advice these days and only believe it, if science sanctions it. There is so much partial, poor and marketed ideas being pandered that I'm suspicious of this talk. Have to do my own homework from a variety of sources that both agree and deny this information. This million dollar business makes me highly suspicious. Not to mention, most Christians are all about money and entertainment.

    Some people will never understand anything, so what he used people from a church he goes where he knew many will go week after week and this make groups of potential people he can help out and they will help others so forth. It was a logical and easy decision to start, nothing to do with the fact he is a Christian he could have been a Musulman still he would have to choose where else their is a gathering of people to reach and help... Only negative mind would find faults where there isn't!

He says at the beggining, 3 minutes on, that our brains have more connections than stars in the usniverse. And then he goes on to say that we have around 10.000 individual connections between cells in our brain. But as far as I know there are billions of stars in our galaxy only not to mention the whole universe. So what does he actually mean? Or did he just made a mistake?
