History of mild traumatic brain injury is associated with deficits in relational memory, reduced hippocampal volume, and less neural activity later in life

Results indicated middle-aged adults with a head injury in their remote past had impaired memory compared to gender, age, and education matched control participants, consistent with previous results in the study of memory, aging, and TBI. Read article

Working memory and corpus callosum microstructural integrity following pediatric traumatic brain injury

In both groups of children, lower FA and/or higher radial diffusivity in callosal subregions connecting anterior and posterior parietal cortical regions predicted poorer verbal working memory; higher radial diffusivity in callosal subregions connecting anterior and posterior parietal, as well as … Continue reading

Reduced contribution of executive functions in impaired working memory performance in mild traumatic brain injury patients

We suggest that MTBI may lead to WM deficits as the contribution of executive processes to support the WM is diminished following MTBI. Read article

Autobiographical memory and episodic future thinking after moderate to severe traumatic brain injury

Results revealed that TBI patients recalled/imagined proportionally fewer episodic event-specific details for both past and future events compared to healthy controls (η(2) (p) = 0.78). Read article

Neurocognitive predictors of financial capacity in traumatic brain injury

Multiple cognitive functions are associated with initial impairment and partial recovery of FC in moderate-to-severe TBI patients. In particular, arithmetic, working memory, and executive function skills appear critical to recovery of FC in TBI. Read article
