Changes in emotional and social behaviour are relatively common following severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Despite the serious consequences of these changes, little is known about the underlying neuropsychological deficits. In this study, we investigated which deficits might underlie these behavioural changes. The emotional and social behaviour of 17 patients with severe TBI was assessed with questionnaires, completed by the patient and a relative. Neuropsychological tests assessed… 
Social cognition impairments in relation to general cognitive deficits, injury severity, and prefrontal lesions in traumatic brain injury patients.
TLDR
It is concluded that social cognition tests are a valuable supplement to a standard neuropsychological examination, and the incorporation of measurements of social cognition in clinical practice is strongly recommended.
Executive disorders and perceived socio-emotional changes after traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
It is concluded that executive functions, and especially multitasking, encompass processes whereby one can consciously control one's emotional reactions and behaviours.
Social behavior following traumatic brain injury and its association with emotion recognition, understanding of intentions, and cognitive flexibility
TLDR
Findings failed to confirm the used model for social behavior deficits and may cast doubt on the alleged link between deficits in emotion recognition or theory of mind and social functioning.
Social Behavior and Impairments in Social Cognition Following Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Of the three functions considered, emotion recognition was associated with both post-injury behavior and community integration and this association could not be fully explained by injury severity, time since injury, or education.
Deficits in Facial Emotion Recognition Indicate Behavioral Changes and Impaired Self-Awareness after Moderate to Severe Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of disability, specifically among younger adults. Behavioral changes are common after moderate to severe TBI and have adverse consequences for social
Reading emotions after child brain injury: A comparison between children with brain injury and non-injured controls
TLDR
Emotion-recognition skills, which are not routinely assessed following child brain injury, can be adversely affected as a consequence of brain injury in childhood.

Social and emotional competence in traumatic brain injury: New and established assessment tools
TLDR
It is concluded that theory of mind tests are not adequate for clinical assessments of social competence, and the development and piloting of novel measures in a small group of moderate to severe TBI patients and non-brain-damaged controls are explained.

TLDR
A patient with traumatic orbitomedial frontal lobe damage demonstrated good neurocognitive recovery but a lasting, profound disturbance of emotional regulation and social cognition that remained impaired on tasks requiring the interpretation of social situations, which mirrored her impairment in real life functioning.

TLDR
The MTBI group showed significantly higher levels of post injury depression than controls on the NBAP and pre injury levels of depression in theMTBI group were also higher than the controls but both the patient reports and those of family members confirmed an increase in depression following MTBI.
Neurological and Neuropsychological Bases of Empathy
TLDR
Empirical changes are particularly evident after focal prefrontal cortex damage and closed head injury in adults, though early frontal lobe damage is also associated with poor empathic and social development.

TLDR
Results of a parent questionnaire indicated that head-injured subjects exhibit less appropriate social behavior than controls and the data showed a strong trend for global ability to interpret emotion to predict social behavior.
Prediction of psychosocial recovery after head injury with cognitive tests and neurobehavioral ratings.
TLDR
The results supported the hypothesis that tests of flexibility and programming rather than tests of cognitive skills predict psychosocial recovery after closed-head injury, and cognitive flexibility and mental programming are very important psychological prerequisites of social recovery after CHI.
Psychosocial adjustment after traumatic brain injury: what are the important variables?
TLDR
Severity of injury and impairments, along with chronicity and level of self-esteem were significant predictors of psychosocial adjustment, and the variable measuring behavioural regulation of abilities was the most significant within the neuropsychological domain.

The social perceptual deficits of schizophrenia.
TLDR
Social perceptual deficits in schizophrenia were significantly associated with verbal recall memory and relatively unrelated to visual vigilance, which were used in a study on rehabilitation of cue perception which showed that memory rehabilitation significantly improved cue perception whereas attention focusing strategies had no appreciable effects.
