The Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Symposium (mTBI Symposium) is an annual event that brings together researchers and clinicians to learn about the latest discoveries in and care for brain injury.

The mTBI Symposium 2022 will be held in conjunction with OHSU's Research Week, on Tuesday, May 3, 2 - 4:30 p.m., and will feature short talks and a keynote address.

We are thrilled to announce that Nora Kraus, Ph.D., will present a virtual keynote address during the mTBI Symposium: 

Hearing, Concussion and Sound Processing in the Brain

Dr. Kraus is Hugh Knowles Professor of Communication Sciences, Neurobiology, and Otolaryngology at Northwestern University. As a biologist and amateur musician she thinks about sound and brain health.

Her research has found that our lives in sound, for better (musicians, bilinguals) and for worse (concussion, hearing loss, language disorders, noise), shape how our brain makes sense of the sounds we hear. Her book OF SOUND MIND - How our Brain Constructs a Meaningful Sonic World, was written for the intellectually curious.

Kraus advocates for biologically informed choices in education, health, and society. See for more information.
