Research has broadened our understanding of the scope of the brain changes mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cause. This session will explore ways to expand mild TBI assessment beyond historical batteries that focus on attention and memory to include techniques that measure other areas affected by mild TBI, such as auditory attention and social communication.
