Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. In the US alone, there are 2.8 million emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and deaths each year, and more than 5.3 million Americans are currently living with a TBI-related disability. Approximately 90% of these injuries are considered ‘mild’ TBI, or concussion. Research is needed to better understand the impacts of traumatic brain injury and ultimately develop new treatments. This research study seeks volunteers with no history of brain injury to serve as comparisons to those with TBI. Using non-invasive, ultra-high field (7 Tesla) MRI technology will allow researchers to see features of the brain that will help improve traumatic brain injury treatment.
