Traumatic Brain Injury Research Lab

The University of British Columbia, Kelowna, British Columbia
What the facility does

Brain and behavioural assessment in traumatic brain injury

Area(s) of Expertise

Our lab has expertise in the assessment of traumatic brain injury using behavioural and cerebrovascular physiological techniques. These combined approaches allow more objective insight into the diagnosis, management and return-to-activity decisions following a concussion.

Research Services
