My Broken Brain

Over 700,000 people in Ireland suffer from some form of neurological condition.  As this number is set to increase as the population ages, the importance of brain research cannot be underestimated.  Over the course of this programme, we follow patients experiencing four such conditions; Epilepsy, Motor Neurone Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease – as they undergo testing, surgery and treatment. The contributors know that it may be too late for them, but all are willing participants in the science and research battles to find, if not a cure, then a better way to manage their condition. Their futures may be written but their present-day stories are ones of resilience, love and family in the face of huge adversity.
