Research Projects

The NEURO-detect Lab is involved in a number of innovative projects! Here are our major projects:

Current Projects

Here are the current projects led by the NEURO-detect lab:

Brainchild

Brainchild

Using data obtained from clinical assessments conducted in the Neurosciences program at Alberta Children’s Hospital, we are establishing an outcome database to helps us study the various outcomes of youth with neurological disorders.

CC PCS

Complex Concussion PCS

The Alberta Children’s Hospital Complex Concussion Clinic sees over 200 youth a year who suffer from protracted recovery from concussion. The goal of this research is to document the severity and duration of post-concussion symptoms in this specialized population.

NEURO-track

NEURO-track

Do youth with a pediatric concussion have altered brain structure and function several years after the injury? The NEURO-track study investigates neurobiology several years after pediatric concussion in a longitudinal cohort to answer this question.

Past Projects

Here are some of the projects conducted by the NEURO-detect lab in the past:

CBT-I for mTBI

CBT-I for mTBI

In this study, we are conducting a randomized control trial to determine if Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) can treat sleep disturbances in adolescents with protracted recovery from concussion.

NEURO-detect

In this study, we combine cognitive, psychological, behavioural, and vestibular measurements with neurobiological correlates to better understand what happens to the brain long-term after multiple injuries.
