R3 LAB Brain Injury Clinical Research Laboratory

Description

The clinical research activities at the R3 LAB, founded and directed by Michelle McKerral, Ph.D., at the CRIRIURDPM focus on enhancing rehabilitation effectiveness (i.e., implementation of evidenced-based cognitive and interdisciplinary interventions) and monitoring recovery of cognitive function and social participation (i.e., use of mixed methods: neuropsychological, electrophysiological brain imaging, outcomes reported by clinicians, patients, family caregivers) in adults with traumatic brain injury or other brain injuries (e.g. stroke), in order to positively influence their short- and long-term outcomes (e.g. return to work, quality of life).
