Offsetting Hippocampal Degeneration in m-sTBI

Brief description of study

The goal of this study is to establish the feasibility of an intervention designed to improve memory in patients who have experienced a moderate or severe traumatic brain injury (m-sTBI) and to examine its effect on brain structures.

Detailed Study Description

The purpose of this study is to establish the feasibility of a novel intervention, and explore biomarker predictors of neurodegeneration and response to the proposed intervention. This 16 week intervention utilises allocentric spatial navigation tasks to improve memory and counteract hippocampal neurodegeneration. This intervention will be administered in combination with neuropsychological assessments, MR imaging, and the analysis of genomic variants at two time points; 6 months post-TBI and 12 months post-TBI.
