Ralph G. DePalma Memorial TBI Clinical Strategies

Cognition and mild TBI history: Recent findings from the LIMBIC-CENC prospective study along with clinical translation

by William Walker, MD
Seminar date: 12/6/2022

Description: Recent research findings will be presented that utilize neurocognitive testing and other clinical data from the Long-Term Impact of Military-Relevant Brain Injury Consortium (LIMBIC) multicenter prospective study of U.S. military personnel and Veterans with combat exposure, which has enrolled over 2,300 participants so far. Two recent analyses will be highlighted, one examining the relation between mild TBI history and cognition, and the other examining the relationship between physical acidity and cognition among the TBI positive participants. Clinical relevance will be discussed, and recommendations for clinical care strategies that incorporate our findings will be provided.

Target Audience: Clinicians involved in care of patients with chronic cognitive concerns after mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) and/or researchers interested in mild TBI and/or cognition.

• Understand the relationship between remote mTBIs and cognitive performance in the LIMBIC-CENC cohort
• Understand the relationship that aerobic exercise/activity has with cognition and well-being in LIMBIC-CENC participants with positive mTBI histories
• Assimilate these recent findings into the research literature
• Learn clinical strategies to address cognitive concerns among patients with prior
