You can’t help but be impressed by the research going on at the Center for BrainHealth at UT Dallas. Top to bottom, I think they are putting in place the team that will lead to new breakthroughs in autism, attention deficit disorder, Alzheimer’s, and other significant brain issues.
Dr. Didehbani conducts clinical research as a part of the BrainHealth Institute for Athletes team and administers neuropsychological assessments with professional athletes involved in the study. Dr. Didehbani, a liscensed psychologist, is also trained to conduct the repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) intervention as part of BrainHealth's research with service members returning from war. Previously, Dr. Didehbani administered psychological and neuropsychological tests to a diverse in- and out-patient population, worked to improve social and language skills of children with autism, and performed cognitive therapy on TBI patients in a neurocognitive rehabilitation facility.
