Oculomotor Predictors of Recovery from mTBI
The purpose of this research study is to examine the changes in eye movements following concussion/mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) in an effort to uncover variables that predict recovery from head injury.
If you agree to participate, we ask that you return for a follow-up visit about 3 months post-injury, during which you will repeat a portion of today’s visit a second time. Specifically, the visit will entail the following activities:
- Completion of a brief 25-minute cognitive screener assessing current cognitive abilities (e.g., attention, memory, reaction time).
- Answering a self-report questionnaire about current symptoms, as well as two questionnaires measuring mood-related symptoms, and two questionnaires related to sleep quality/symptoms. This portion of the appointment is estimated to take less than 10 minutes.
- Completing a brief 10-minute eye-tracking paradigm where you will be required to watch and respond to a series of short tasks with eye movements (e.g., following a moving target with your eye movements, generating eye movements/reactions to specific targets).
- 18-55 years old
- Experienced first head injury in the past month
