    Medical Imaging and Concussion

    CBIRT is hosting a TBI webinar on Thursday, February 13th from 9:30-10:30AM with Dr. Deborah Little titled Medical Imaging and Concussion. I have included a flyer for sharing, please forward this email to those who may be interested.

    To view the flyer, click here.

    Deborah M. Little, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the director of research for the Trauma and Resilience Center. In general, her work is focused on elucidating neurobiological alterations in the central nervous system secondary to trauma (brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, toxic exposure), identifying  psychosocial outcomes following trauma and the development of early interventions to reduce chronic trauma burden. Current projects include those set out to characterize the mechanisms that underlie risk for neurodegenerative disease secondary to brain trauma; development of diagnostic tests using high field magnetic resonance imaging for those who have been exposed to toxins during military service; and development of early interventions for PTSD.
