Background and activities

Migle Karaliute MD is a ph.d. candidate at the Clinical Neuroscience Laboratory (CNL), Department of Psychology, NTNU. Migle achieved a degree in medicine at Vilnius University, Lithuania in 2008. She completed her internship and neurological residency studies in Norway and works now as a consultant neurologist at the Department of Neurology at St. Olavs University Hospital. In her ph.d. project she focuses on the recovery of symptoms after mild traumatic brain injury. In this work, she aims to delineate the natural history of post-concussive symptoms the first year after injury, further, she studies how both self-reported and performance-based cognitive control function is associated with white matter organization as measured using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), as well as the effect of metacognitive therapy (MCT) on prolonged post-concussive symptoms. Her research activities are part of research programs in Trondheim TBI Group and Clinical Neuroscience Laboratory
