BNL: "It's a Wrap" - D. Michele Basso, Ed.D, PT: April 1 @ 9:30AM
Myelin plasticity and rehabilitation in chronic spinal cord injury: Relying on translational research and close collaborations with Dr. McTigue and her lab, we examine whether activity-dependent rehabilitation in both mice and humans regulates white matter changes in chronic spinal cord injury. Our intervention is novel and focuses on eccentric motor control to drive complex skill learning and integration of supraspinal and afferent systems. We measure myelin plasticity using reporter genes in mice and MRI techniques in humans.Learn More

On Friday, June 9th, the Chronic Brain Injury Program will be hosting "Engineering Brain Injury Solutions" in partnership with the College of Engineering! This symposium seeks to foster collaborations across brain injury researchers and engineers via short talks, posters, and discussions. Faculty, staff, trainees, and partners are all welcome to attend! Registration and abstracts are due by May 31st. Visit go.osu.edu/brainengineering to get started!
CBI's 2023 Annual Research Day was a huge success with over 130 attendees from various disciplines coming together to network, learn, and advance the field of chronic brain injury. Our event kicked off with 58 poster presentations from trainees, faculty, and staff, which covered a wide array of topics relating to brain injury — such as sleep fragmentation, inflammation and immunity, addiction disorders, dementia prevalence and development, advances to technology, and impacts for athletes. In total, the presenters represented nine departments from Ohio State and three departments from Nationwide Children's Hospital, highlighting the interdisciplinary nature of brain injury and the importance of collaboration within our research community.
