One of the most devastating effects of traumatic brain injury (often in young adults) is the loss of cognitive functions, including social cognition (ability to process social cues in the environment). We have explored mechanisms to remediate these abilities using computer based and behavioural approaches and also some preliminary work using transcranial direct current stimulation. What has not been done is examining whether a combination of methods is more efficacious than any one alone. In this project we plan to undertake a systematic assessment of different approaches to improving social cognition.
