Regulatory Science and Traumatic Brain Injury
This research explores the rise of traumatic brain injury as a health concern, focusing on how shifting scientific and public health discourses frame the condition and its treatment. It considers how inequality mediates regulatory strategies targeting traumatic brain injury among sport participants, military personnel, and survivors of interpersonal violence in Australia, Canada, and the United States (including U.S. Pacific Island territories). The aim is to illuminate how science and regulation interact across contexts, as well as how they reflect shifting understandings of brain health, the mind and body, and (injured) human agency.
