Brain Injury Studies

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Cognitive and behavioral impairments major sources of disability among persons with TBI, particularly during the immediate post-injury period. Posttraumatic encephalopathy is a term used to denote the broad range of such impairments, from coma to mild neurocognitive disorder. The research team at SRH is investigating methods by which to more accurately assess these problems and their treatments. Findings from this study will be used to develop new methods by which to improve cognitive functioning and reduce long-term disability after TBI.
