Deadline: 15/12/2000
September 29, 2003

Applications in response to this call will involve collaborative studies that apply fMRI to assess the neurological deficits that accompany changes in executive functioning after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Studies that correlate functional imaging with other assessments of outcome are especially encouraged. Plasticity within the injured brain, or the use of other regions and complementary strategies to accomplish tasks, could either facilitate or inhibit recovery and rehabilitation.

At present, little is known about the possible correlation of alterations in imaging patterns with dysfunction produced by TBI, or about the effects of training strategies for TBI-induced deficits on brain structure and function. It is important to know if specific strategies can induce, alter, or redirect functional patterns within the damaged brain, and if those changes are reflected in neuropsychological or behavioural outcome measures. Letter of Intent deadline: December 15. Application deadline: February 15.
