Brief description Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a common cause of brain damage, leading to a variety of disabling cognitive problems. This study will evaluate the ability of new brain imaging techniques and cognitive tests to detect previously undiagnosed brain damage and to predict patient outcome following TBI in order to improve the health care and treatment of these patients. It will also examine the contribution of other factors (eg. injury type, age, pre-injury cognitive ability) to outcome.
