Sleep Disturbances following Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury
Proper sleep is an important facet of health for all ages, but is especially critical in children because of its role in brain development and maturation. In this webinar, Rachel K. Rowe, Ph.D. explains why sleep disturbances are an acute deficit and chronic morbidity of TBI, and describes the pathology that may lead to sleep disturbances in the pediatric population. She also discusses ongoing pre-clinical studies that investigate underlying pathology and potential therapeutics. Click here for more information.

Jennifer P. Lundine, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, BC-ANCDS, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Speech and Hearing Science at The Ohio State University and a clinical researcher at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, in Columbus, Ohio. She has over a decade of experience working as a speech-language pathologist on a pediatric rehabilitation unit. Her clinical, teaching, and research interests include cognitive-communication disorders associated with complex pediatric medical conditions, such as acquired brain injury (ABI). Specifically, her research focuses on improving gaps in access to and utilization of services designed to support children and adolescents with ABI and identifying specific approaches that would improve assessment and treatment practices following pediatric ABI.  

Rachel K. Rowe, Ph.D., is an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Integrative Physiology at the University of Colorado-Boulder. Dr. Rowe received her PhD from the University of Kentucky College of Medicine where she trained at the Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Research Center and completed her dissertation on post-traumatic sleep following diffuse brain injury. She received her post-doctoral training at the Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix where she continued to study brain injury-induced alterations to homeostasis including sleep and endocrine disruptions. Dr. Rowe’s laboratory is currently funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense. Her ongoing research projects focus on pathological sleep following acquired neurological injuries, neurodegenerative diseases, and aging.

Danielle Ploetz, Ph.D., is a neuropsychologist in the Specialized Transition Program at the the Kennedy Krieger Institute’s day rehabilitation hospital. She also works in the interdisciplinary Concussion Clinic. She earned her Ph.D. at the University of South Alabama in a combined and integrated clinical/counseling psychology program.
