Morning tea will be provided after the seminar with the opportunity for Early Career Researchers to attend a mentoring session with the guest speaker.

SEMINAR OVERVIEW
Many returning OEF/OIF Veterans with concussion histories report cognitive problems that may last for months or even years. Co-morbid conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression may prolong the symptoms of TBI resulting in lowered attention, processing speed, learning and memory. This study evaluated the efficacy of repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) as a promising therapeutic treatment for executive function (EF) deficits seen in mild to moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Veterans.
