TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY AND INSOMNIA

What is this project about?

We are interested in understanding how we can best treat sleep problems in people who have experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI). This study will test the effects of two different types of treatment on your TBI-related sleep troubles. You may be assigned at random to one of these two treatments. 

This study is approved by the Johns Hopkins Institutional Review Board (IRB00062258). The principal investigator for this project is Luis F. Buenaver, PhD

Am I eligible to participate?

We are looking for volunteers who are between the ages of 18-65, sustained a TBI in within the last 5 years, and have trouble sleeping. Take our screener here to find out if you might be eligible for this study!
