My research is devoted to using advanced imaging techniques to study the neuroanatomic basis of traumatic coma.  The goals of this research are to elucidate the neural networks that enable recovery of consciousness and to develop novel imaging biomarkers that can be used to improve the care of civilians and military personnel with traumatic coma.  Ongoing research studies include diffusion tractography analyses of neural network connectivity in living patients with traumatic coma and in postmortem brain specimens from patients who died after traumatic coma.
