Cognitive and Neurobiological Research Consortium 2002-2007

Research Consortium on TBI

The Cognitive and Neurobiological Research Consortium in Traumatic Brain Injury (CNRC-TBI) was a bi-coastal research initiative involving Weill Cornell Medical College, the University of California at Berkeley, and the University of California at San Francisco. The primary goal of the current research has been to characterize impairment and understand the neurobiological underpinnings that can lead to mTBI symptoms. The CNRC team found a direct connection between the shearing of white matter fibers in the front of the brain after mTBI and attention and memory difficulties. The attention difficulty was found to be mainly a timing problem which was less diagnosed with eye-tracking.
