Research topics: The Stanford Brain Performance Center at Stanford is a multidisciplinary research center that focuses on advancing the neuroscience of brain performance through development, injury, and aging.  Examples of work include traumatic brain injury guideline development, sports-related concussion studies, dynamic vision normatives in children, sex-based differences in brain injury recovery, health disparities among neurocritical care, and mental health and injury.

Techniques: We do not operate in a traditional "lab" setting. We use data set development through prospective and retrospective clinical studies to further scientific research.  Data for analyses may include neuroimaging, biomarkers, and other outcomes.
