Literature Review
 posted 9-16-2014

Attached is the start of a 2013-2014 literature review for those of you who are interested in TBI vision dysfunction research. My intent is to keep this search going and eventually compile a resource (by year, title, author and topic) that is accessible for all VA ODs. The attached review is for 2013-2014 only. Past articles will be added when I have time. Future articles will be added as I review them for relevance. If you find one that I missed and think it would be interesting to add, please send me the link or journal info and I will add it.

Don’t forget: those of you who are AOA members can access the Brain Injury Electronic Resource Manual on line at the AOA web site. If you have any suggestions for this manual please feel free to contact me about it.
