Brain Injury Studies conducted by the Program in Rehabilitation Neuroscience in collaboration with the VA and University of California
The purpose of this research is to find better ways to treat cognitive problems associated with brain injury and post traumatic stress. These studies involve testing interventions designed to improve attention, organization, and goal management. Studies are open to people between age 18 - 75. There will be a screening interview. Participation requires a one day to six month commitment, depending on the study.
If you are interested in participating, call 925-372-2498 (East Bay) or 415-221-4810, ext 4129 (San Francisco Area).

Visualize the quiet despair and lonely struggle of those affected by brain injury as they attempt to understand their private new reality . . .
Consider the value of a community organization dedicated to empowering and connecting those affected by brain injury to resources . . .
Imagine how easy it would be for you to improve the lives of so many . . .
All brain injuries are traumatic to those affected – both survivors and caregivers – but not all brain injuries are traumatic brain injuries (TBI). TBI's are one type of acquired brain injury (ABI). The common denominator is the body's most important and least understood organ, the human brain. Common causes of brain injury are included here.
The Brain Injury Connection's (BIC) focus is on the ABI community. We are committed to helping those whose lives have been affected by brain injury and we want them to know immediately they are not alone and there are resources available to them.
Brain injury changes lives. Those living with a brain injury are often neglected and misunderstood because the problems are invisible, which makes them easier to ignore or misdiagnose.
