On Wednesday, September 5th, Dr. Lori Davis of the University of Tulsa spoke at Brookhaven Hospital on the subject of cognitive and communication issues after traumatic brain injury. Dr. Davis, a speech pathologist, addressed the relationship between speech and language problems and cognitive deficits caused by injury to the brain. Her presentation provided both rehab and mental health professionals with a unique understanding of the communicative problems caused by cognitive deficits in patients immediately after brain injury and throughout the patient’s lifetime.
