Cognition

The Cognition Team is working to prevent brain injury and to improve recovery for people living with brain injury. Researchers are developing therapies, identifying best practices, and conducting population-based research. They are gaining insights into underlying neurological causes of poor recovery. These findings are informing new approaches that can help people with brain injury function better in the community. The team’s initiatives address person-centered care, chronic disease prevention and management.

Team leader: Dr. Robin Green

Current projects include:

  • a study to determine what happens when patients with head injuries get twice as much therapy each day during their hospital stay
  • development of therapies that address neurological, personal and environmental barriers to participation
  • strategies to help people with cognitive disabilities to adjust to community living, such as an adapted cognitive behavior therapy
  • creation of the first population-based brain injury registry
  • knowledge mobilization initiatives to promote best practices
