Dr. Brian Brooks

The NEURO-detect lab is led by Dr. Brian Brooks. Dr. Brooks is a pediatric neuropsychologist at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, an adjunct assistant professor with the Departments of Pediatrics and Clinical Neurosciences, an adjunct associate professor with the Department of Psychology, a scientist with the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute (ACHRI), an associate member of the Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI), and a member of the Integrated Concussion Research Program (ICRP).

He is a fellow of the National Academy of Neuropsychology, a recipient of the early career award from the National Academy of Neuropsychology, and a two-time recipient of the Nelson Butters Award from the National Academy of Neuropsychology for research contributions to neuropsychology. He is supported by a CIHR Embedded Clinician Researcher Salary award, as well as project funding as a principal investigator from ACHRI (Shaikh Family Award) and the University of Calgary Cumming School of Medicine (Clinical Research Fund).

His research focuses on youth who have poor recovery from concussion/mild traumatic brain injury, through improving early diagnosis, better prognostication of outcome, and potential treatment options. He is also studying long-term outcomes from multiple concussions using neuropsychological and neuroimaging tools. In addition to concussion research, Dr. Brooks also studies the neuropsychological impact of other forms of acquired brain injuries (e.g., moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury, perinatal and childhood stroke, hydrocephalus, encephalitis) and has numerous publications on improving test interpretation (e.g., performance validity testing, multivariate base rates).
