The conference will address the neurophysiology of brain injury, advances in imaging research and new approaches to treatment and rehabilitation. It will feature several internationally-recognized brain injury researchers and many Medical College scientists who study brain trauma.

According to the school, an estimated 3.8 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury each year. It's also a contributing factor to a third of all injury-related deaths in the United States.
