The MINDSET lab (MRI Investigation of Neurodegenerative Disease, Stress Effects and Traumatic brain injury) is a research laboratory dedicated to studying the long-term effects of traumatic brain injury and psychological stress on the brain, cognition, and broader health outcomes. We use neuroscience tools such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging including structural T1-weighted imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, and fMRI to examine potential links between trauma and neurodegenerative disease.
We are located within the Psychology Department at The Ohio State University, College of Arts and Sciences.
Lab director Jasmeet P. Hayes is also faculty in the Chronic Brain Injury Program at OSU, committed to advancing the prevention, detection, and treatment of brain injuries. She is also faculty in the Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Brain Sciences at OSU and is a faculty affiliate in Sports Medicine Institute.
