          Analyzing 12-Year-Old’s Anger Issues: What Does A Brain Scan Reveal?


          April 7, 2016

          Parents Melanie and Dave say their family is being torn apart due to the extreme anger issues of their 12-year-old daughter, Aneska.

          They say Aneska has been physically and verbally abusive since she was 3 years old, threatening her parents, her siblings and school officials. They say she has even been extremely violent toward small animals.

          According to Melanie, they first noticed a change in Aneska’s behavior after they say she fell off of her tricycle when she was 3 years old, landing on her face.

          “It was like somebody had flipped a switch,” Dave notes. “Aneska was a totally different child.”

          Could the injury have led to Aneska’s extreme behavior? Are there other neurological factors contributing, as well?

          Watch the video above, as Dr. Bradley A. Jabour, CEO/Chief of Neuroradiology of Smart Brain and Health, takes a closer look at Aneska’s MRI and brain scan results.
