Prediction of Recovery After Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Using Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
What are we studying?
We are doing this study to try and see if there is a relationship between certain chemicals in the brain and cognitive function after a person experiences a concussion. We hope that if a relationship does exist, we can use the measurements of those brain chemicals to monitor a person’s recovery after a concussion.
Who can participate?
We are looking for NCAA athletes (ages 18-30 years old), who do not have an active medical or psychiatric illness, are able to have MRI scanning done, and are either a college athlete who has experienced a concussion within the last 6 months or a college athlete who has not experienced a concussion to participate in our study.
How will participants be compensated?
Subject will be compensated at the end of Visit 1 for participating in this study.
