Despite research in the area of mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) and methods for detecting mTBI events, our understanding of the biomedical basis for mTBI environmental sensor threshold values is limited. Researchers continue to have difficulty with quantifying blast intensity and correlating that data to acute and chronic neurological effects. To identify and address these challenges, the DoD Blast Injury Research Program Coordinating Office (PCO) hosted the 2014 International State-of-the-Science (SoS) Meeting on the Biomedical Basis for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Environmental Sensor Threshold Values in McLean, Virginia on November 4-6, 2014. Discussions and recommendations from this meeting guide the development of improved medical screening and assessment tools and drive improvements in protective equipment.
The meeting participants were charged with answering the following questions during the working group sessions:
