Feedback and Learning in Individuals with and without Clinical Depression and TBI

The purpose of this research study is to examine the influence of 'feedback timing' (feedback about your performance is either presented immediately or after a delay) on learning and brain function in individuals with moderate to severe TBI with or without depression. 

 

Participants complete questionnaires and learning tasks on a computer and while in an MRI scanner.
