Abstract:
We intend to demonstrate that acupuncture is an effective means of treating insomnia in patients with traumatic brain injury. Further, acupuncture has a more favorable side-effect profile than most commonly used insomnia medications, and we expect to see this translate into improved cognitive and affective (mood) outcomes.
