Clinical and Research Interests:
Dr. Graham works with the Neurorehabilitation: Neurons to Networks Traumatic Brain Injury Center of Excellence, and his currently ongoing 4-year grant involves examining functional neuroimaging, genetic polymorphisms, and neuropsychological tests for biologic markers associated with good versus poor social recovery from blast-related TBI in the returning OEF/OIF/OND Veterans. More generally, Dr. Graham's research focuses on the identification and intervention of psychiatric co-morbidities (including but not limited to depression, anxiety, substance use/abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder) for Veterans with cognitive impairment (dementia or TBI).
As a clinician, Dr. Graham performs initial mental health screenings with the returning OEF/OIF/OND Veterans at the Michael E. DeBakey VAMC in the Post-Deployment Clinic.
