NEURO-detect

Welcome to the Website of the NEURO-detect Lab!

Our Mission

The NEURO-detect lab has a commitment to enhancing children’s functioning, outcome, and quality of life following a brain injury through world-class clinical research that will directly improve the quality of care.

Our Program

Our research program is focused on the neuropsychological outcomes of children and adolescents with acquired brain injuries, with most studies looking at concussion/mTBI. There are four broad goals of our research with youth:

  1. Improve our ability to diagnosis, manage, and prognosticate after brain injury

  2. Understand neurobiopsychosocial markers of the post-concussion syndrome

  3. Evaluate long-term outcomes from brain injury

  4. Explore treatment methods for youth with concussion/mTBI (both early prevention of poor recovery and treatment of those already with post-concussion syndrome)

We employ a variety of tools in our research, including computerized cognitive testing, traditional paper-and-pencil neuropsychological testing, psychological questionnaires, and neuroimaging. Our collaborators include numerous other investigators locally (ACH and the University of Calgary), provincially, nationally, and internationally.
