Identifying predictors of outcome following childhood brain injury

28 November 2018

We are seeking families with children aged 5-13 years with no known brain injury to participate in a study at Aston University. The study aims to find out whether we can predict the challenges that children with a brain injury may face by examining differences in brain scans and thinking skills between healthy children and children with brain injuries. Children who participate will undergo an MRI scan at the Aston Brain Centre and complete some game-based tasks 24 months following the scan.
