Brain dynamics associated with cognitive problems in mild traumatic brain injury
Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) often results in persistent cognitive problems which negatively impact the quality of life for millions. We here aim to investigate brain network changes associated with attention and working memory deficits following mTBI with a focus on oscillatory brain activity measured with MEG. The findings will be linked with structural MRI data. The PhD project will be integrated into the mTBI-Predict UK consortium at the University of Birmingham which plans to collect brain imaging data from 800 mTBI patients. The PhD student will develop the project with leading experts with a focus on prognostic markers.
