The current proposal aims to explore the relationship between brain function and connectivity in selective pathwayscircuits, neuropsychological functioning, and cognitive rehabilitation response in Veterans with both Traumatic Brain Injury TBI and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder PTSD. Toward this end, we propose a randomized clinical trial involving a cognitive rehabilitation intervention that targets improved executive functioning, with the participation of N100 Veterans diagnosed with both TBI and PTSD n50 experimentaln50 control.
