Rehab for Blast Related Brain Injuries- Free CEU for ST

IM for Rehab of Blast Related TBI– Dr. Lonnie Nelson will present the findings of a recently completed randomized controlled, trial of Interactive Metronome® (IM) therapy in the treatment of persisting cognitive symptoms following blast-related traumatic brain injury in a sample of active duty Soldiers. Soldiers were randomly assigned to receive either standard rehabilitation care, or standard care plus Interactive Metronome® therapy. Initial findings show that IM therapy significantly improved Attention, Immediate Memory, and Delayed Memory functioning. Indicators of neuroplastic change suggest that brain changes due to IM therapy account for large portions of the variance in neuropsychological test performance. Six month follow-up data are currently being collected. Preliminary results were published in the journal Neuropsychology in 2013 with additional publications pending completion of the study and further analysis of electro-cortical and follow-up data
