Breakthrough Stroke Surgery; The Brain on Stress; BOE Members

Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States suffers a stroke. It's the fifth leading cause of death in the country, and stroke is the leading cause of long-term disabilities.  As part of a clinical trial, the Cleveland Clinic has performed what it calls the first deep brain stimulation surgery for stroke recovery. We explore what this could mean to stroke patients down the road.

Six new members join the Ohio Board of Education in 2017... how will they impact education legislation?

And, we'll dive into the science inside the skull.
