Seminar date: 3/23/2021
Description: Increasing evidence suggests repeated low-intensity blast exposure may be an occupational hazard for operational personnel and could result in cumulative neurological change. This presentation will review the latest evidence for the neurological effects of such exposures, helping to provide a roadmap for researchers and clinicians alike in further understanding the implications of these observations.
Intended audience: Research scientists and clinicians involved with the study of military TBI as well as the management of individuals with this condition.
