Featured NICHD Clinical Trials
- fMRI and NIRS Imaging for Traumatic Brain Injury
This trial compares the more common brain imaging method, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), with a less-common method known as near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). Researchers will test both methods in people with TBI to see whether they provide similar results.
- An Acute Neurobehavioral Program for Improving Functional Status After TBI
The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of a 10-session acute-care intervention designed to improve the functional status of patients with TBI. Therapeutic components of the program include cognitive remediation, demonstration, guided self-reflection, rehearsal, and supported practice of skills and strategies.
