Session 4: Current Topics in TBI and Clinical Neuropsychology
Neuropsychology faculty from MCW will discuss cutting edge topics in clinical neuropsychology through case examples and current research. Workshops will address current thinking on assessment and management of pediatric concussions and describe the neuroanatomical correlates and cognitive constructs underlying a variety of neurobehavioral syndromes.
