Examining the Relationship between TBI and the Onset of Schizophrenic-like Symptoms: A Case Control Study

I am a doctoral student at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology conducting research on TBI and the onset of schizophrenic-like symptoms.  My project is entitled Examining the relationship between traumatic brain injury and the onset of schizophrenic-like symptoms: a case control study.  I am looking for individuals above the age of 35, who have had a TBI, and a diagnosis of schizophrenia or a similar psychotic disorder.  The individual should have the mental health diagnosis post the TBI and no history of mental health issues prior.  If the individual qualifies, they will be given a shortened neuropsychological assessment at no cost to them. The time for the evaluation is about 5 hours and can be split up if the individual so chooses. There is no monetary compensation for participating however a copy of the report is optional, again at no cost to them and the report may be used to their discretion, psychological or rehabilitative purposes since the evaluation will look at a number of cognitive domains.  My contact information is, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
