October 21, 2013

Carthage alumni Justine Trueden, Rachel Chiariello and Natasha Wilkins, now graduate students at the Medical College of Wisconsin, will return to campus to present a talk on “Preclinical Investigations of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury.”

The talk is part of the 2013-14 Natural Sciences Colloquium Series, which offers students of all majors and interests many opportunities to learn and develop in the natural sciences. Colloquium speakers range from Carthage professors and students to invited guests from institutions around the world.

The talk will be held at 4 p.m. in the Niemann Media Theatre in Hedberg Library. Refreshments will be provided.

Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is an increasing issue throughout the several different aspects of life. The Medical College of Wisconsin is researching the different effects that these injuries cause acutely and chronically. “Preclinical Investigations of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury” is a glimpse of the models being used to simulate the injury and the quantifying measures being used to correlate it to real life situations.
