Research

Dr. Saleem’s clinical and translational research focuses on a) understanding the mechanism of neurophysiological, physiological, and neuromotor dysfunction in mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), and b) utilizing physiological, neuromotor, or targeted neuromodulatory interventions to help restore function and recovery in individuals with mTBI. Dr. Saleem has conducted research examining the impact of post-concussive symptoms on activities of daily living after pediatric mTBI. She has also assessed if postural control measures comprising complex postural tasks are more sensitive to detecting residual balance/gait dysfunction in symptomatic and asymptomatic children after mTBI. Her research also includes the evaluation of motor planning abilities in children with mTBI using motor imagery assessments. Her work is now expanding to include intimate partner violence-related mTBI. Dr. Saleem is interested in identifying and/or refining expedient and sensitive diagnostic assessments and developing cost-effective interventions to optimize evaluation, treatment, and prognosis in individuals with mTBI.
