Condition traumatic brain injury
Treatments brain mri, mri

End date January 2014
Trial size 240 participants
Trial identifier NCT01628003, SHEBA-09-7297-AS-CTIL


It is hypothesized that the long-term results of rehabilitation and subsequent aging after Brain Trauma depend on brain's premorbid anatomical (structural) and functional (cognitive, emotional) reserves.

The purpose of this study are:

1. to determine whether such reserves exist.

2. to study their convergent and discriminant validity.

3. to study their characteristics.
