Healthy Control Participants Required For CREST Concussion Study

Healthy Control Participants Required for CREST Concussion Study

If you are considered healthy and have not suffered a concussion within the past 5 years, the CREST Concussion Study would like to hear from you.

Recruiting Healthy Control Participant for CREST Concussion Study

The Neurotrauma team at Curtin University and the Perron Institute, led by Professor Lindy Fitzgerald, are currently recruiting participants for an exciting new study on concussion – the CREST Concussion REcovery STudy. This study is the largest of its kind in Western Australia and involves a range of techniques that are at the forefront of concussion research.

The aim of the study is to identify factors which may predict individuals at increased risk of delayed recovery following concussion to better manage treatment and improve recovery.

We are currently recruiting “Healthy Control Participants” to take part in the research. Healthy controls are an important part of the research process, as it enables us to see what our test results would look like in people of a similar age and gender, who have not recently experienced a concussion (within the past five years), compared to those who have recently experienced a concussion.

Participation as a “Healthy Control” will involve a short questionnaire about yourself and your general health, an MRI scan, EEG, neuropsychological tests, blood tests and exercise bike tests.
