11:15 am
of sites began trickling in. people on twitter called it chaos. the huffington post reports that some places ran out of ballots. others stopped checking i.d.s in an effort to get people through faster. entranceolling showed nearly 60% of voters last night consider themselves angry with the federal government, and that anger likely helped trump win his landslide victory. >> we won with young, we won with old, we won with highly educated, we won with poorly educated -- i love the poorly educated! >> trump has nearly 80 delegates now. keep in mind, candidates need more than 1200 to gain the republican nomination. marco rubio says he'll continue to do better as candidates drop out of the race. >> a number of republican voters in this country do not want donald trump to be the nominee. i think that's been pretty clear now. the problem is they're divided
11:16 am
in south carolina it was five people, before that it was seven people. so until there is some consolidation here, you're not going to have a clear path to donald trump. when jeb bush's campaign ended, donald trump's numbers continue to climb, not senator rubio's. in the democratic nomination, days from the south carolina primary, bernie sanders went after critiquing hillary clinton that he's a single issue candidate. >> i'll tell you something, if i may. people are asking, how does it happen and why does her super pac receive millions and millions of dollars from wall street? >> clinton reassured voters that she plans to clamp down on wall street. she has a luncheon in south carolina in a couple hours. clinton leads the polls the,

11:18 am
all about the wedge -- it's going to be hanging in here this afternoon, which will threat our diminishing weather. we've got all this area in green under a flood watch including the metro area and west virginia until late tonight. we could get three inches of rain causing high water. watch out for that. in the day ahead, if you had problems with snow removal after the blizzard, you might get a chance to speak up about that. there will be a snow forum tonight at key elementary school in arlington. 54% of you were satisfied or neutral about arlington county's response. officials will also read other results from the survey. the forum starts at 7:00 at key elementary's cafeteria. a push to make it easier to buy a gun could cost prince william county a lot of money. the county board of supervisors says it's no longer charging a $35 fee for a concealed handgun permit. s

another chance today to see something pretty unprecedented. spacex is launch ing a rocket, then it's going to try to land back on earth in one piece. the company did it successfully a couple months ago, however, a space launch is more complicated. in fact, it's expecting the experimental landing to fail. the first time doctors are linking certain mental disorders with brain
11:21 am
because the link could help doctors more precisely diagnose problems and treat them. we're joined this morning by a doctor to tell us about this. what does that mean, brain circuits? what are we looking for? >> what doctors are looking at, they're primarily looking at brain scans for things like functional mris or cat scans, pet scans, along with eegs and they're trying to figure out, are there particular areas of the brain that are either overactive or underactive with certain mental conditions? the goal is if we can identify certain areas of the brain that are implicated, we might be able to recommend treatments to address those issues. >> so do they sit down and ask you a series of and have a checklist to decide how the person answers whether they are mentally ill? >> if you're experiencing difficulties, you come in and talk to a psychiatrist like me. i'll be asking about different things you might be experiencing. based on th
11:22 am
one. what these people are trying to do and what sicientists are trying to get towards is having more subjective data. they're looking to be able to find, are there particular areas of the brain that are clearly implicated? i think this is important for a couple reasons. one, i think it will destigmatize mental illness even further because we can say, look, it's not that person's fault. they don't just need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. you can see they have an area that's not working correctly. and maybe we can recommend a treatment to specifically address their problem. >> with brain waves, you can map the brain by using a test swab to test someone's genetic ability. >> what you're doing with those tests, you're taking a cheek swab and you're trying to find out if it gives you information of how they may
11:23 am
certain treatments or whether they have neurotransmitter frequencies. this is not a game changer. we're not really there right now, and my main concern is i don't want people out there to think, oh, my gosh, i can't afford to get my family member, my loved one, these tests, and therefore, i'm not doing well by my family member. because these are expensive tests and they don't really make a big, big difference at this point. hopefully down the road we will have some tests and treatments that can, but right now we're not there. >> when it comes to mental illness we need to talk a little more about what can be done at this point. let's do that in a little bit. we'll be back with you. >> thanks, barbara. well, it's a weather alert day, and after the break we'll tell you when to expect the

11:38 am
poetic wit. like his famous float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. his controversial conversion to islam, changing his name to mohammad, and refusal to fight in vietnam on religious grounds shut down his career for a few years, temporarily taking away his titles. he was down but not out. and in standing firm for his principle on racial justice and religious freedom, he won the respect of many. he made a comeback in the ring, regaining his lost titles, and he remains today the only man who has three times been crowned heavyweight champion of the world by the world boxing association. mohammad ali proudly earned his place in history books as one of america's greatest athletes, earning the praise of presidents and people around the world. while books tell his story, the museum hopes to do more. >> people get excited when

11:42 am
of diagnosing people with mental illness and specifically about genetic testing. >> so there is a cheek swab now that you can do for people where you're sending their dna off to a lab, and what the lab is analyzing is a few things. they're trying to figure out, are there particular medications that this particular person, based on their dna, may be more or less likely to respond to. it also can test things like whether they lack a certain enzyme critical for production of some neurotransmitters or brain chemicals. it can also show whether you need higher doses of medicine, or maybe you're a slow metabolizer, so maybe you need less medicine so it's more helpful. i don't want anyone to think they can just go to a doctor, get a cheek swab, and based on that cheek swab, they're going to be able to find out exactly what treatment they need. we are n
11:43 am
some patients. >> aren't we at a point now where we have a baseline for what is normal with brain activity and with some of the metabolism things you were talking about. do we know what's normal? >> we do have an idea of what's normal, so yes. but you got to keep in mind, we are still in the infancy stage with a lot of this stuff. there's more we don't know about the brain, even normal brain functioni functioning, than we know about abnormal brain functioning. there is so much out there that's left unexplored. that's why there is this big push to explore the brain now and really make that the new effort for this century, is to really understand what's going on so we can develop more appropriate and effective treatments for mental health issues as well as alzheimer's, et cetera. >> and the treatment would be medication or some other things you're thinking about? >> in the ideal world, maybe we don't need medication. maybe in 20 or 30 years, you can go in and use an electrode and
11:44 am
directly stimulate a particular area of the brain. who knows, maybe there's things we can't even dream up right now that will be able to alter issues in the brain and more cure mental illness rather than just treat the symptoms of it, which is the way it is currently. >> a lot of people are calling in for something new, a new way to treat mental illness. >> there hasn't been anything new in many years, so we need something to change the game. now, you may want to get out of your seat if you plan to learn something new. researchers in the netherlands have second and third graders get out of their seats and exercise while they learn math and language. after doing this every couple of days for two years, the kids did better on their testing. their spelling and math scores were higher than other students' scores. the scores equal about what they would have gotten in four extra months of learning. after the break, a
