Participants must have experienced a brain injury less than three years ago that resulted in lasting problems with memory and cognition and be between the ages of 18 and 60. The study will last 12 weeks and involve four trips to the medical center campus. Participants will be compensated for their time.

The multi-center study is a National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research project.
