Description:
This study is being done to see if the Buffalo Concussion Physical Exam and the Tele-Brain Injury Screen can be safely used to identify brain injury and its impact on functioning in female survivors who have experienced intimate partner violence. The Buffalo Concussion Physical Exam is a non-invasive physical exam that examines neck/head area for any discomfort. This exam also tests standing balance and the ability to follow movements with eyes. The Tele-Brain Injury Screen tells us how individuals suspected of brain injury are feeling and whether the way they are feeling is interfering with their functioning. In essence, we want to understand if intimate partner violence could result in brain injury. We also want to understand the effects of brain injury on daily functioning and social functioning.
