Primary objective: To examine implicit and explicit memory outcome in children who had sustained severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) through childhood. Opposite patterns of impairments were expected: (i) impaired implicit memory in children with early TBI (TBI-EC, < 6 years) and (ii) impaired explicit memory in children with late TBI (TBI-LC, ≥ 6 years). Research design: Children who had sustained severe TBI more then 1 year ago were assessed. Methods and procedure: Fourteen children who had… 
Assessment of memory functioning over two years following severe childhood traumatic brain injury: results of the TGE cohort
TLDR
Memory functioning is highly variable following severe childhood TBI, related to injury severity and functional, cognitive and educational outcomes; improvement is significant during the first-year post-injury, but varies according to the type of memory.
Memory functioning 7 years after severe childhood traumatic brain injury: Results of the Traumatisme Grave de l'Enfant study.
TLDR
Memory functioning is variable but often strongly impaired several years after severe paediatric TBI, and is mostly related to injury severity, functional outcomes measured 1 year post-injury, and concomitant cognitive and educational outcomes.
Sequelae in children: developmental consequences.
Memory Disruption Following Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
This chapter reviews studies of memory loss following TBI, with a focus on studies in animal models of brain injury and how results from these studies have shaped the understanding of the mechanisms and consequences of TBI on the brain’s memory systems.
Implicit memory influences on metamemory during verbal learning after traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
The results suggest that JOLs may be influenced by subliminal implicit memory, and clinical implications include the possible use of antipriming to reduce overconfidence after brain injury and delaying J OLs to improve recall.
Consonant accuracy after severe pediatric traumatic brain injury: a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
Over a 12-month period, severe TBI had more adverse effects for children whose ages placed them in the most intensive phase of PCC-R development than for children injured later.
Static and Dynamic Factors Promoting Resilience following Traumatic Brain Injury: A Brief Review
TLDR
Drawing on human and animal studies, the research reviewed indicated that various factors can improve outcomes in multiple domains of functioning following a TBI, but many of these factors have not been studied across populations, have been limited to preclinical investigations, has been limited in their scope or follow-up, or have not involved a thorough evaluation of outcomes.
Errorless learning improves memory performance in children with acquired brain injury: A controlled comparison of standard and self-generation techniques
TLDR
This study extends upon previous research to provide the first demonstration of the effectiveness of errorless methods in a group of young people with ABI, suggesting that self-generation was no better than standard examiner-generation.
57 Rehabilitation and Outcome of Head Injuries
TLDR
It is shown that younger children may be more at risk for impairment than older children, particularly if the head injury is severe, and that rehabilitation of children with brain injury continues to receive a great deal of attention.

Recovery in memory function in the first year following TBI in children
TLDR
The severe TBI group exhibited greater deficits on memory tasks, irrespective of modality, in the acute, 6- and 12-month post-injury stages, in comparison to mild and moderate TBI groups.
Memory outcome at 5 years post-childhood traumatic brain injury
TLDR
Recovery from childhood TBI in the elongated post-injury period indicated that severe TBI was associated with decreased complex auditory-verbal memory performance, although children with TBI did not display impairment on immediate, working or complex visual-spatial memory.
Implicit and explicit memory in children with traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
Results are consistent with those reported in the adult TBI literature and have implications for understanding and rehabilitating memory impairments in children with TBI.
Children's attentional skills 5 years post-TBI.
TLDR
Attentional and processing speed deficits do occur and persist up to 5 years post-TBI, particularly following severe TBI in early childhood, and those skills developing or emerging at time of injury are more compromised and may not develop at a normal rate of post-injury.
Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury and Procedural Memory
TLDR
Results are consistent with those reported in the adult TBI literature and suggest that procedural memory, a type of implicit memory, is preserved in children with TBI.
Cognitive outcome in children and adolescents following severe traumatic brain injury: influence of psychosocial, psychiatric, and injury-related variables.
TLDR
A principal components analysis of independent variables showed significant (p < .05) bivariate correlations with the outcome measures yielded a neuropsychiatric factor encompassing severity of TBI indices and postinjury psychiatric disorders and a psychosocial disadvantage factor.

TLDR
Results showed that the severe TBI group exhibited greater deficits on memory tasks, irrespective of modality, in the acute, 6, 12, and 24-month postinjury stages, in comparison to mild and moderate TBI groups.
Functional Plasticity or Vulnerability After Early Brain Injury?
TLDR
Findings support a “double-hazard” model for severe and early brain insults and add to the ongoing debate regarding cerebral plasticity, suggesting that, contrary to traditional views, young children who sustain severe TBI in early childhood or moderate or severe T BI in infancy may be particularly vulnerable to significant residual cognitive impairment.
Implicit and explicit memory in children with congenital and acquired brain disorder.
TLDR
The findings indicate that implicit memory is relatively intact in many children with congenital and acquired brain disorders, despite deficits in explicit memory, and support the existence of separate memory systems in children.
Thirty month outcome from early childhood head injury: a prospective analysis of neurobehavioural recovery.
TLDR
Children with more severe injuries, lower pre-injury adaptive abilities and lower socio-economic status are at greatest risk of long-term neurobehavioural impairment, even several years post-injured.
