The JFK Coma Recovery Scale-Revised: measurement characteristics and diagnostic utility.
Evidence-based cognitive rehabilitation: recommendations for clinical practice.
Overall, support exists for the effectiveness of several forms of cognitive rehabilitation for persons with stroke and TBI, and specific recommendations can be made for remediation of language and perception after left and right hemisphere stroke.
Evidence-based cognitive rehabilitation: updated review of the literature from 1998 through 2002.
The minimally conscious state: Definition and diagnostic criteria
MCS is characterized by inconsistent but clearly discernible behavioral evidence of consciousness and can be distinguished from coma and VS by documenting the presence of specific behavioral features not found in either of these conditions.
Diagnostic accuracy of the vegetative and minimally conscious state: Clinical consensus versus standardized neurobehavioral assessment
Standardized neurobehavioral assessment is a more sensitive means of establishing differential diagnosis in patients with disorders of consciousness when compared to diagnoses determined by clinical consensus.
Disorders of consciousness after acquired brain injury: the state of the science
The state of the science with regard to clinical management of patients with prolonged disorders of consciousness is described, and consciousness-altering pathophysiological mechanisms, specific clinical syndromes, and novel diagnostic and prognostic applications of advanced neuroimaging and electrophysiological procedures are reviewed.
Placebo-controlled trial of amantadine for severe traumatic brain injury.
Amantadine accelerated the pace of functional recovery during active treatment in patients with post-traumatic disorders of consciousness, indicating a benefit with respect to the primary outcome measure.
The JFK coma recovery scale—revised
Psychometric properties of the CRS-R appear to meet standards for measurement and evaluation tools for use in clinical and research settings, and diagnostic application suggests that the scale is capable of discriminating patients in the minimally conscious state from those in the vegetative state.
Behavioural improvements with thalamic stimulation after severe traumatic brain injury
This corrects the article to say that the author of the paper is a post-graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the article was originally written by a PhD student.
