Seeing minds in brain-injured patients

New IPPP research, in collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine's Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy, suggests that family caregivers and clinical professionals might be 'hardwired' to perceive minds in brain-injured patients. The research team asked participants to describe their thoughts about the minds of brain-injured patients. They found that many participants believed patients having complex mental capacities, such as fear, tenacity, or boredom, which extend beyond the clinical evidence. The study is published in the journal Brain Injury.
