This study examines how injury mechanisms and early neuroimaging and clinical measures impact white matter (WM) fractional anisotropy (FA), mean diffusivity (MD), and tract volumes in the chronic phase of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and how WM integrity in the chronic phase is associated with different outcome measures obtained at the same time. Diffusion(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess cognitive function at 12 months after moderate and severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) separately, as well as improvement from 3 to 12 months and relationship to global outcome. METHODS Cognitive function among patients with moderate (n = 30, Glasgow Coma Scale score (GCS) 9-3) and severe traumatic brain injury (n = 20, GCS score ≤ 8),(More)
The objective of this study was to explore the evolution of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in normal-appearing tissue of the corpus callosum during the 1st year after traumatic brain injury (TBI), and relate findings to outcome. Fifty-seven patients (mean age 34 [range 11-63] years) with moderate to severe(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the magnitude and frequency of cognitive impairment 3 months after moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), and to evaluate its relationship to disability at 1-year follow-up. DESIGN Prospective follow-up study. SETTING Regional level I trauma center. PARTICIPANTS Patients aged 15 to 65 years with definite TBI, defined as(More)
This study investigated how the neuronal underpinnings of both adaptive and stable cognitive control processes are affected by traumatic brain injury (TBI). Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was undertaken in 62 survivors of moderate-to-severe TBI (>1 year after injury) and 68 healthy controls during performance of a continuous performance test(More)
Survivors of moderate-severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) are at risk for long-term cognitive, emotional, and behavioural problems. This prospective cohort study investigated self-reported executive, emotional, and behavioural problems in the late chronic phase of moderate and severe TBI, if demographic characteristics (i.e., age, years of education),(More)
