If you are a Game of Thrones fan, then you’ll know the mother of dragons, Daenerys Targaryen, played by actor Emilia Clarke.

What you might not know is that Emilia has had brain injury and brain surgery.

Here’s a wonderful article from The Conversation about brain injury and how the brain responds to injury. The brain’s ability to heal itself is remarkable. Add in red and near infrared lights, and the healing process is stimulated.
