Psychological Database for Brain Damage

Psycbite  Psychological issues following traumatic head injury are quite common. Persons who have sustained brain trauma frequently develop depression and anxiety disorders. Post traumatic stress disorder frequently coexists with traumatic brain injury, especially following mild brain injury. I recently came across an interesting web site from England designed to enable clinicians and researchers to quickly identify, evaluate and implement evidence-based interventions for psychological issues experienced by people with acquired brain impairment. The site is called PsycBITE

Here is how the site describes itself: PsycBITE™ is a database that catalogs studies of cognitive, behavioral and other treatments for psychological problems and issues occurring as a consequence of acquired brain impairment (ABI). The types of studies contained on this database are Systematic Reviews, Randomized Controlled Trials (RCT), Non-Randomized Controlled Trials (non-RCT), Case Series (CS), and Single Subject Design (SSD).   These studies are rated for their methodological quality, evaluating various aspects of scientific rigor.
