Associations between depressive symptoms and cortical thickness. Colormaps represent statistically significant associations of reduced BDI–II total scores with increased cortical thickness over time (pvertex < .01, pcluster < .05). R = right; VLPFC = ventrolateral prefrontal cortex; APFC = anterior prefrontal cortex; DPFC = dorsal prefrontal cortex [Color figure can be viewed at wileyonlinelibrary.com]

In the first study of its kind, veterans and civilians with traumatic brain injury showed improved cognitive performance and psychological and neural health following strategy-based cognitive training.
A recent study at Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas shows that a certain type of instructor-led brain training protocol can stimulate structural changes in the brain and neural connections even years after a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
