Sleep disturbances are an acute deficit and chronic morbidity of TBI, and the presence of sleep disturbances can exacerbate symptoms and impede recovery. 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. Understanding how TBI impacts sleep in the pediatric population could lead to the improved treatment of children post-TBI.

Learning Objectives

  1. Explain sleep disturbances as an acute deficit and chronic morbidity of traumatic brain injury.
  2. Describe pathology that may lead to sleep disturbances in the pediatric population.
  3. Identify ongoing pre-clinical studies that investigate underlying pathology and potential therapeutics. 

Includes 1 ACBIS CEU.

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 Ph.D. 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.
