Biography

Dr Gershon Spitz leads the Precision Neurorehabilitation group within the Monash-Epworth Rehabilitation Research Centre and is the Deputy Program Lead of the Brain Injury and Rehabilitation theme at the School of Psychology. He is also a Group leader at the Trauma Group and iBrain research groups at the Department of Neuroscience, Monash University.

His research focuses on traumatic brain injury, which is a growing global health challenge due to persistent, debilitating, and complex interactions between cognitive, emotional, and behavioural impairments. Traumatic brain injury is increasingly recognised to result in pathological evolving processes that span many years or decades. 

He leads a multidisciplinary research group comprising clinicians and basic research scientists with the following key objectives: 


1) to understand the biological, psychological, and social/environmental mechanisms that underlie persistent cognitive, emotional, or behavioural disturbances following traumatic brain injury. 


2) to use established mechanistic understanding to develop novel interventions for persistent difficulties following traumatic brain injury.
