They will use the grant to implement a clinical trial to assess the efficacy of cognitive rehabilitative therapy for TBI for members or former members of the Armed Forces.

The project entitled "Neural Markers and Rehabilitation of Executive Functioning in Veterans with TBI and PTSD" will use magnetic resonance imaging, brain electrophysiological recordings, and neurocognitive assessment tools to map the neural circuits that mediate cognitive impairment associated with combined mTBI/PTSD diagnoses, and their reorganization following cognitive rehabilitation.
