Research

Research in the lab seeks to improve our understanding of the cognitive and emotional consequences of sport-related concussion and traumatic brain injury in order to improve assessment and treatment methods.


We are interested in improving the assessment of sport-related concussion and traumatic brain injury through improving existing assessment tools and procedures and developing new indices and instruments.
