Site for Identifying the Cognitive, Psychological, and Neuroimaging Signatures of Head Trauma in Female Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence
The overall purpose of this study is to examine the effects of sub-acute and chronic traumatic brain injury (TBI) and hypoxic brain injury (HBI) on neural networks, cognitive, and psychological outcomes in individuals who have experienced intimate partner violence (IPV). Participants will be asked to complete a series of cognitive tests and a brain imaging scan.
The study includes interviews to discuss your any experiences you have had with physical abuse and head trauma, as well as current and past mental health history. Then you will complete questionnaires to see how you feel about your mental and physical health, followed by tests to assess your thinking abilities. Finally you will complete a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) session to examine brain structure and function. All of the testing should take approximately 6 hours to complete.
