Optimizing and maintaining abilities after stroke

2015/16-2020/21 • $2,230,482 • PI,Other
Program Vision: As a result of devastating motor-sensory deficits, stroke patients spend most of their time during rehabilitation focused on regaining arm and leg mobility. Despite these gains, we have shown that arm and leg use after traditional rehabilitation declines dramatically after...

Behavioural profile matching: A precision medicine approach to concussion rehabilitation

2018/19-2020/21 • $333,319 • PI,CO
Concussions are very common. Although many people recover well from concussion, at least 1 in 5 will have persistent symptoms and difficulties with daily activities. How people cope with their symptoms following concussion powerfully influences their recovery. We have recently identified two...

Mobilizing early management of mental health complications after mild traumatic brain injury (M4)

2020/21 • $187,425 • PI,CO
People who sustain a concussion (also known as a mild traumatic brain injury) often develop mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. Mental health problems can make concussion symptoms worse and magnify difficulties with daily activities. Best practice guidelines recommend that...

A prospective and longitudinal investigation of concussive and subconcussive mild traumatic brain injury mechanisms in ice hockey

2020/21 • $125,971 • PI,CO
Sports concussion is a major public health concern. Even more alarmingly, recent findings show that repeated subconcussive head impacts in sports may also lead to long-term brain changes. Despite the prevalence of sports-related brain injuries, we still have very limited understanding of how the...

SECRET: Study of rivaroxaban for CeREbral venous Thrombosis

2018/19-2019/20 • $191,250 • PI,CO
Cerebral venous thrombosis is a condition where blood clots form in the draining veins of the brain. It is a rare type of stroke but when it occurs it tends to affect younger women. 75% of patients are female and 80% are under the age of 50. People with CVT can have severe headaches, vision...

Precision Fluid Biomarkers of Traumatic Brain Injury

2018/19 • $100,000 • PI,CO
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is one of the most challenging brain disorders to study. TBI can happen to anyone at any time, at any level of severity. TBI spans a wide range of severity from mild (including concussions) to life-threatening injuries, and there is much uncertainty about how to...

A telehealth intervention to promote healthy lifestyles after stroke

2014/15-2015/16 • $102,421 • PI,CO,Other
BACKGROUND: The lifetime risk of stroke is 1 in 5 for women and 1 in 6 for men over age 55. The vast majority of individuals with stroke are not engaging in healthy lifestyles and are at high risk for serious psychosocial and physical complications. As a result, the majority of stroke survivors...

Examining the Effects of Alcohol Misuse on the Neuropsychological and Neuropathological Outcome from Traumatic Brain Injury: A Longitudinal Study.

2010/11-2014/15 • $769,167 • PI,CO
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the leading causes of death and disability in persons under the age of 50 years. Alcohol misuse is a significant risk factor for TBI. The prevalence of alcohol intoxication in hospital patients presenting to the Emergency Department with head trauma ranges...
