Brain Injury Laboratory

Lab Description

The Brain Injury Laboratory focuses on measurement issues in concussion management, investigating potential biomarkers, specifically from the pituitary gland, and incorporating functional magnetic resonance imaging to address metabolic aspects of concussion. In addition we address interdisciplinary collaboration to address these and other areas of concussion and other sport-related injuries such as exertional heat illness.
