Blythedale Children's Hospital & Burke Rehabilitation & Research invite you to:

Effect of Age at Brain Injury on Outcome

April 19, 2018         5:00-7:00 pm

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED 

When children experience a brain injury, neural development is interrupted. How injury and development interact is complex. This course will combine evidence from brain science with epidemiology of children with brain injury to understand this interaction.  We will discuss time windows that might be important: sensitive periods, when activity is critical for normal development, optimal periods, for intervention after injury, and vulnerable periods, when the brain is injured more easily or profoundly. We will discuss these concepts across different brain functions: movement, sensation, vision, and thinking. We will present evidence for different responses to brain injury across these brain functions.  The goal is to put together theoretical concepts with empirical data to improve our ability to make prognoses and to treat children with brain injury.

Registration Fee is $30
