For the first time, researchers are studying the brain injuries of combat veterans, using mapping techniques, hoping to better understand the intricacies of how such injuries occur and what can be done about them. I am excited because such research will ultimately benefit my brain injury clients, who struggle on a daily basis with their condition. The St. Louis researchers will use three types of imaging equipment to compile information that investigators hope may lead to better treatment for blast injuries and car accidents.
The grant from the government to conduct the study is $5.3 million. For the article, please click on the following link: http://www.slu.edu/x31438.xml
