"Brain fog" is a term used to describe a bunch of different cognitive issues like short-term memory problems, difficulty concentrating, word-finding issues, indecision, loss of interest/motivation, and much, much more.

The problem with brain fog is that everyone experiences it from time-to-time! It's perfectly natural to have short-term memory problems or even have difficulty concentrating.

So, how can we know when brain fog stops being "normal" and starts to become something that concerns your doctor? Dr. Travis Turner does a great job explaining how a neuropsychology evaluation can help patients and their doctors figure out what is normal and what may need more clinical attention in a patient's care plan.

This lecture was given at the November 16, 2017 Chapter meeting in Charleston, SC at MUSC. (2017)
