A Compendium of Neuropsychological Tests: Administration, Norms, and Commentary
This volume is a compilation of the neuropsychological tests currently used by the authors and their colleagues at the University of Victoria (Melbourne, Australia) Neuropsychology Laboratory. As
Lack of effect of induction of hypothermia after acute brain injury.
TLDR
Treatment with hypothermia, with the body temperature reaching 33 degrees C within eight hours after injury, is not effective in improving outcomes in patients with severe brain injury.
The Galveston Orientation and Amnesia Test: A Practical Scale to Assess Cognition after Head Injury
TLDR
Review of the brief cognitive test literature disclosed that several techniques have adequate validity data substantiating their use in the detection of dementia in geriatric, psychiatric, and medical populations and Recommendations for the clinical application of the various brief cognitive tests are discussed.
Cognitive Outcome Following Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
In adults, penetrating, moderate, and severe TBIs are associated with cognitive deficits 6 months or longer postinjury.

TLDR
Although the findings provide support for utilising clinical ratings of behaviour to investigate sequelae of head injury, extension of this technique to other settings is necessary to evaluate the distinctiveness of the neurobehavioural profile of closed head injury as compared with other aetiologies of brain damage.
Benton Controlled Oral Word Association Test: reliability and updated norms.
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to update the over 20-year-old normative data for the Benton Controlled Word Association (COWA) Test, and the updated values fall above the original normative values, which were derived from a less well-educated and rural sample.
Neurobehavioral outcome following minor head injury: a three-center study.
TLDR
The data suggest that a single uncomplicated minor head injury produces no permanent disabling neurobehavioral impairment in the great majority of patients who are free of preexisting neuropsychiatric disorder and substance abuse.
Longitudinal neuropsychological outcome in infants and preschoolers with traumatic brain injury
TLDR
The persistent deficits and lack of catch-up over time suggest a reduction in the rate of acquisition of new skills after severe TBI, which may produce subtle linguistic changes adversely impacting estimates of Verbal IQ and expressive language.
Diffusion tensor imaging of acute mild traumatic brain injury in adolescents
TLDR
In adolescents with mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) with Glasgow Coma Scale score of 15 and negative CT, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) performed within 6 days postinjury showed increased fractional anisotropy and decreased diffusivity suggestive of cytotoxic edema.
