Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries impact the lives of thousands of people every year with rehabilitation lasting anything between a few days to a number of months - or even years.

And despite the growing awareness of the damage mTBIs can have on a person’s life - new and effective therapies are still being developed.

Dr. Henry Mahncke CEO of Posit Science & Brain HQ joined Jonathan to discuss.

Dr. Ruth Freeman & Dr. Shane Bergin also joined us to discuss the top science news for Newsround.
