Brain Features of the Blast Exposed Warrior

We studied United States service veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), who were exposed to blasts during deployment. In this study, brain structure and function are related to blast exposure and a wide range of functional and physiological outcome measures.

This study was made possible through the support of the Resurrecting Lives Foundation, directed by Dr. Chrisanne Gordon.
