The Washington Post interviews Sudhin Shah of WCM Radiology

This autumn, The Washington Post interviewed Sudhin Shah, Ph.D., assistant professor of neuroscience in radiology, for an article on cognitive motor dissociation (CMD), a disorder of consciousness where patients are aware yet can’t physically respond.  

“Without a physical response, a physician might assume that a patient hasn’t understood,” Shah told The Post. “And, she said, referring to the patient, ‘Unfortunately, it could be that you were processing, you were understanding, you were wanting to talk to me. You just can’t.’” 

In the articlewhich highlights a pivotal study helmed by the laboratory of Jan Classen, M.D., F.N.C.S., professor of neurology and director of critical care neurology at Columbia UniversityShah, whose pioneering research aided Aidan Galaska, the first child to receive a CMD diagnosis, offers Post readers expert insight.
