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.
