Summary

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the effectiveness of "RehaCom," a computerized treatment for memory deficits, in a 16-session, interactive course. Following a manualized approach, the Rehacom modules will be used for the repeated application of the content acquired during 1-on-1 memory strategy training. The goal is to improve face/name, list and verbal memory of patients who survived a moderate to severe traumatic brain injury.

Description

This randomized clinical trial (RCT) consists of 20 chronic moderate-to-severe TBI patients who will receive memory strategy training and complete three memory modules of the RehaCom at one of the Kessler Foundation locations. Changes in attention, processing speed, verbal/non-verbal new learning and memory (NLM) and executive control will be assessed via pre/post and 3-month follow-up assessments before and after the 8-10 week intervention. Self-report questionnaires will also track functional and emotional outcomes such as mood and anxiety, cognition, quality of life, self-efficacy, deficit awareness, community participation, and readiness for occupational functioning
