Researchers at the University of Tasmania invite individuals with or without an acquired brain injury (ABI) to participate in a study about ABI and social cognition - how people process, store, and apply information about other people and social situations.

A group of researchers from the School of Psychological Sciences, University of Tasmania, are conducting a study examining social functioning among individuals with an acquired brain injury (ABI).

As part of this study participants will be asked to attend two testing sessions. One of these sessions will be held at the University of Tasmania and the other session will be held online (via Zoom).

Each testing session is estimated to take approximately 2 hours. Participants will be asked to complete various mental tasks assessing attention, memory, reasoning and problem solving, and social processing abilities.

You are eligible to participate if you:

  • Are aged between 18 and 65 years
  • Have experienced either a traumatic brain injury or stroke; or
  • Have never experienced a brain injury and do not have any other neurological condition

Participation in the research is voluntary.
