Stony Brook University gets $7.9M grant for cognitive study on 9/11 responders

A $7.9 million federal grant will help researchers at Stony Brook University determine whether World Trade Center toxins can cause cognitive problems in recovery workers, reports Robert Brodsky for Newsday.

This will be the first cognitive monitoring study done on those exposed to contaminants at the World Trade Center. Approximately 1,000 people enrolled in Stony Brook’s WTC health monitoring program will participate in the study.

The study will also attempt to discover if PTSD plays a role in cognitive impairment.
