Clinical Trial

Attention & Emotional Regulation Post-Traumatic Brain Injury

Study Description

Relationship Between Attention and Emotional Regulation Post-Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

The purpose of this pilot study is to investigate the relationship between attention and emotional function post-Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in an effort to better understand the cognitive mechanisms of emotional processing in patients with TBI, and explore novel treatment strategies to improve emotional regulation using with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to modulate activity in the dysfunctional prefrontal-limbic circuits.
