Traumatic Brain Injury, UM: $2.2M

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects 13% of Montana’s adult population. Researchers are 1) expanding clinicalservices for TBI survivors and veterans at the UM Neural Injury Center to improve graduation rates; 2) developing a comprehensive panel of tests to diagnose mild TBI; 3) using molecular techniques to develop new therapeutic inhibitors; 4) developing a computer- based cognitive training system for TBI subjects with cognitive impairment; and 5) developing and testing a novel post-traumatic epilepsy diagnostic analysis program.
