Project Description: 

We are conducting a study on young military veteran college students with and without history of brain injuries.  Veterans are given memory and attention tests and also are also asked to self-assess their cognitive abilities.  The group data will be used to examine the effect of brain injuries, PTSD, and other service-related conditions to memory and attention difficulties.  Individual data is used to guide suggested compensatory strategies for veterans.

Necessary skills: Comfortable working with people, able to work independently, very responsible and consistent.
