Active Comparator: Brain Training Program 1
Training Program focusing on providing educational information of cognitive issues related to TBI
Behavioral: Brain Training Program 1
The training program includes 12 sessions conducted over 8 weeks. The goal of these treatment sessions is to provide information on brain injury and its recovery process. Activities involved in the sessions include discussion of study material. Participants will be encouraged to apply the information to their daily lives. The program includes additional outside practice of the activities.
Experimental: Brain Training Program 2
Program focuses on strategies to address cognitive issues following TBI
Behavioral: Brain Training Program 2
The training program includes 12 sessions conducted over 8 weeks. The goal of these treatment sessions is to provide strategies to improve brain injury and its recovery process. Activities involved in the sessions include strategies and discussion of study material. Participants will be encouraged to apply the strategies and information to their daily lives. The program includes additional outside practice of the activities.
- Neuropsychological changes [ Time Frame: Neuropsychological changes from baseline to 10 weeks and 3 months post-training ]To examine short-term effects of treatment on cognition and real-life outcomes including psychological health, resilience, depressive symptoms, and symptoms of stress, in soldiers and civilians with TBI. Participants will undergo neuropsychological testing post-training (10 weeks), as well as 3-months post-training.
- Brain connectivity and activation changes [ Time Frame: Neuropsychological changes from baseline to 10 weeks and 3 months post-training ]To examine any connectivity or activation changes in the brain as a result of treatment on fMRI measures. fMRI data will be taken post-training (10 weeks) as well as 3-months post-testing.
