Research

The Watson Centre Society for Brain Health (WCSBH) has been conducting a research study at the University of British Columbia’s Centre for Brain Health.

Dr. Naznin Virji-Babul and her research team are studying the impact of non-invasive cognitive rehabilitation and its influence on individuals who have suffered traumatic brain injuries. The study is being conducted at the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health at the University of British Columbia.

The Watson Centre Society for Brain Health team is very excited about this study and the support it has received.

A Message from Dr. Nazrin Virji-Babul:

“The most important thing we have learned from the pilot project using the BrainExTM intervention/Watson Centre Society Program is that the brain has an incredible capacity to change.   What we have seen – even with a small group of participants – many of whom who had a chronic brain injury –  is that intervention/stimulation can make a change in the brain and in cognitive/behavioural function.  We still have lots to learn about how to best target intervention and many questions to answer about the amount and type of intervention that can lead to most optimal recovery.”
