Live Report From The International Brain Injury Association's 9th World Congress on Brain Injury

I am currently in Edinburgh, Scotland attending the The International Brain Injury Association’s 9th World Congress on Brain Injury. The World Congress on Brain Injury is an annual conference featuring lectures and educational seminars presented by world renowned doctors, lawyers, educators and researchers in the brain injury field.

I currently serve as the Treasurer of IBIA, and so yesterday I attended the IBIA Board meeting. During the meeting we selected David Arciniegas, MD. to serve as President of the 10th World Congress, which is scheduled to be held in 2014 in San Francisco, California. Eight new board members were also elected to the Board.

Today, Harvey Levin, Ph.D. was awarded the Jennett Plum Award for distinguished Scientific Contribution in the Field of Brain Injury. Dr. Levin's presentation was entitled "Evolution of TBI Research: A neuropsychologist's Personal Three Decade Perspective". This afternoon I attended a fascinating discussion of advanced neuro-imaging in TBI.
