I started the year with a lot of admin and now have a pack of new assessments that need to be written up. So for light relief I went searching for brain-related t-shirts.
I've checked http://www.zazzle.com/, which used to have some nice ones and have been most impressed by how their collection has expanded. From brain images, MRI scans and chemical structure of neurotransmitters to t-shirts with slogans such as 'Area 25 made me do it'.
There is also a wide selection of t-shirts for our clients, including such beauties as: 'Concussions will mess with your head', 'Not today, darling, I had a craniotomy', or 'I have chemobrain, what is your excuse?'. Also and iPhone cover that says 'Keep calm and listen to the neuropsychologist'. I'd get a few if I was doing neuropsych rehabilitation.
Sadly, there is also a selection of t-shirts and gadgets with Stroop test.
I'm contemplating buying a t-shirt with 'I can't brain today, I have the dumb' that is just perfect for some days. And a mug with 'Trust me, I am a neuropsychologist' to use at work.
PS: I am building up to some serious posts on computerised assessment tools. I'd appreciate guest posts from people who use them in their practice.
