Traumatic Brain Injury Research
Traumatic brain injury research at Kessler Foundation explores potential treatments and interventions for deficits in cognition, mobility, and emotional processing.
Improving Time-based Prospective Memory in TBI: A Feasibility and Dosing Study
This research aims to test aspects of a computer-based cognitive rehabilitation program designed to improve thinking skills in individuals with TBI, particularly improving the ability to remember to do things in the future.
A Randomized Clinical Trial Examining the Efficacy of the Group Administered Modified Story Memory Technique (mSMT) in Persons with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
The purpose of this research study is to investigate the effectiveness of administering a group memory retraining program in the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) population.
RehaCom Memory Modules in Moderate to Severe TBI
The purpose of this rehabilitation research study is to evaluate the effectiveness of "RehaCom," a computerized treatment for memory deficits, delivered in addition to one on one training of memory, to improve verbal memory and memory for people/faces for patients who survived a moderate to sever
Strategy Based Techniques to Enhance Memory (STEM) for Improving New Learning and Memory (NLM) in Moderate to Severe TBI: A Randomized Clinical Trial
The protocol includes teaching participants how to restructure a memory demanding situation in order to make optimal use of self-generation, spaced learning, and self-testing.
Using Self-Generation to Improve Prospective Memory in Individuals with TBI
This study seeks to improve prospective memory (PM), or “remembering to remember," a distinct aspect of memory that has been demonstrated to be heavily indicative of a variety of tasks of everyday functioning, including independence in activities of daily living, employment, medication adherence,
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Menopause - Survey Data Collection
Researchers are examining menopausal symptoms (e.g., hot flashes, depression, irritability, sleep dysfunction via hot flashes, fatigue via sleep disturbance, etc.) and identifying how these symptoms may also be impacted by traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Pilot Study to Understand the Cortical Changes in Individuals with Brain Injury
The goal of this project is to understand the cortical activity changes due to loss of motor control in lower extremities as a result of brain injury, and also the gain of motor control due to recovery through robotic rehabilitation.
Keeping an Eye on the Symbol Digit Modalities Test
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between eye movements and the speed someone is able to process information.
Combining Physical and Mental Practice for the Rehabilitation of Upper Extremity Movement Impairments Secondary to Traumatic Brain Injury
Northern New Jersey TBI Model Systems
The purpose of this study is to provide information which may help improve the treatment, care, and outcomes of people with traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Home-based Arm & Hand Exercise in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
The purpose of this study is to examine whether a home-based arm & hand exercise program improves functions of the upper limb in people with TBI.
