Project description

Memory deficits in children with traumatic brain injury (TBI) have a

large impact on the child’s daily life. We will investigate whether a training program can promote

improvement in cognition. Using medical imaging techniques we will investigate whether

changes in cognition are supported by modulations in structural connectivity. Our findings may

lead to the development of more effective neurorehabilitation strategies.
