Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Traumatic brain injuries refer to external forces to the head that result in damage to the brain. This may be the result of being hit by an object, a car accident, assault or a fall.
Useful infographic from The Lancet Neurology, outlining key TBI recommendations.
The TBI research programme incorporates a range of research projects that aim to improve how we understand and categorise brain injuries, to develop and test innovative new treatments to improve recovery as well as epidemiological studies to determine the frequency of brain injuries sustained in NZ communities.
Please see our completed and current projects for further details of studies completed in this area.
