Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai
The Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai (BIRC-MS) conducts cutting-edge research, with a primary focus on addressing the challenges of living with traumatic brain injury, or TBI. In several recent studies, we have evaluated the effectiveness of interventions on the cognitive, emotional and behavioral functioning of people with brain injuries. Our research, conducted since 1987, has greatly expanded the knowledge base with respect to long-term challenges that people with TBI face, as well as approaches to leading better lives after injury.
