Biomechanics and the Brain after ACL injury

 In this study, we’re motivated to uncover the neural, cognitive, and neuromuscular risk factors that may be involved in risk for a second ACL injury. Participants in this study will complete 2-2.5 hours of testing at Baldwin Wallace University. This will include having your brain activity recorded using EEG and you also would complete a series of sporting maneuvers during 3D motion capture. EEG is a non-invasive technique that uses scalp electrodes to measure the activity of your brain. You can learn more about how we use EEG in our lab and what this experience would be like for you by clicking here.

02

Adults with Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Study

The goal of this study is to examine brain function and cognitive and psychological health in adults (18-30 years) who experienced a TBI during childhood/adolescence. Participants in this study will have their brain activity recorded using electroencephalography (EEG) while they complete one language and one attention task. EEG is a non-invasive technique that uses scalp electrodes to measure the activity of your brain. You can learn more about how we use EEG in our lab and what this experience would be like for you by clicking here. Participants will also be administered an abbreviated intelligence test and questionnaires assessing mental health and behavior.
