Despite frequent reports of poor concentration following traumatic brain injury, studies have generally failed to find disproportionate time-on-task decrements using vigilance measures in this patient group. Using a rather different definition, neuropsychological and functional imaging research has however linked sustained attention performance to right prefrontal function--a region likely to be compromised by such injuries. These studies have emphasised more transitory lapses of attention… CONTINUE READING
