To date, research focusing on long-term memory functioning post concussion is limited. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the effects of concussion on long-term episodic autobiographical memory, once acute postconcussive symptoms have abated. Individuals with and without a history of concussion were asked to recall autobiographical memories from different life periods. The details, self-reported vividness, ease of recall, and completeness of these memories were assessed… Expand
Autobiographical memory and structural brain changes in chronic phase TBI
The results suggest that TBI-related distributed volume loss affects episodic autobiographical recollection, and that the full TBI sample was associated with reduced volume distributed across temporal, parietal, and prefrontal regions considered to be part of the brain's AM network. Expand
Self-reported concussion history among Icelandic female athletes with and without a definition of concussion
Self-report will continue to be an essential source of clinical information and prompting with a definition can increase the reliability of self-reported concussions, according to this study. Expand
The language used in describing autobiographical memories prompted by life period visually presented verbal cues, event-specific visually presented verbal cues and short musical clips of popular music
Differences in the reports of memories produced indicated that listening to music evoked memories embodied in motor-perceptual systems more so than memories evoked by word-cueing conditions, and lifetime period word cues produced memories with reliably more uses of personal pronouns, past tense terms, and negative emotions.

Pharmacotherapy in rehabilitation of post-acute traumatic brain injury
The goal of this review article is to highlight pharmacotherapies that the authors often use in the clinic that have been shown to benefit various sequelae of TBI to focus on sequelae that they commonly encounter in their practice in the post-acute phase after a TBI. Expand
Abbreviated environmental enrichment confers neurobehavioral, cognitive, and histological benefits in brain-injured female rats
It is confirmed that abbreviated EE confers robust neurobehavioral, cognitive, and histological benefits in TBI female rats, which supports the hypothesis and strengthens the utility of EE as a pre-clinical model of neurorehabilitation. Expand
Refining environmental enrichment to advance rehabilitation based research after experimental traumatic brain injury
The findings replicate previous work showing that 6‐hr of EE daily is sufficient to confer behavioral and histological benefits after TBI and extend the findings by demonstrating that the benefits are comparable regardless of how the 6‐hrs of EE are accrued. Expand
Comprehensive-holistic neurorehabilitation, outcomes and their subjective appraisal in adults with traumatic brain injury
The aim of this book is to provide a chronology of key events and events that led to the invention of Tapestry. Expand


Autobiographical Memory, the Sense of Recollection and Executive Functions After Severe Traumatic Brain Injury
The results suggest that these patients, long after trauma, present autonoetic consciousness and self-perspective disorders, which include sense of identity (the self) as a continuous entity across time, probably related to frontal dysfunction. Expand
Field perspective deficit for positive memories characterizes autobiographical memory in euthymic depressed patients.
The results of the present study suggest that euthymic patients continue to exhibit discrepancy between their current self and their self for positive past behaviors, which maintains an unfavorable view of theircurrent self. Expand
Gender differences in the functional neuroanatomy of emotional episodic autobiographical memory
The data show gender‐related differential neural activations within the network subserving autobiographical memory in both genders and suggest that the differential activations may reflect gender‐specific cognitive strategies during access to autobiographical memories that do not necessarily affect the behavioral level of memory performance and emotionality.

Results indicate that autobiographical recollection is mediated by a distributed fronto-temporo-parietal system, with the anteromedial prefrontal cortex positioned to integrate sensory information with self-specific information. Expand
Autobiographical Memory in Traumatic Brain Injury: Neuropsychological and Mood Predictors of Recall
Survivors of traumatic brain injury are often impaired in their recall of specific events. Depressed, suicidal, and post-traumatically stressed patients also tend to be over-general inExpand
Long-term working memory deficits after concussion: Electrophysiological evidence
The negative correlations between response time and P300 amplitude suggest that the time necessary to accurately respond to targets increases as the efficiency of allocating processing resources decreases during highly demanding working memory tasks. Expand
Feeling of knowing in episodic memory following moderate to severe closed-head injury.
It is proposed that CHI participants may display intact memory monitoring when predictions are based on familiarity assessment but not when continued probing for additional episodic information is required, suggesting that memory monitoring is not a unitary construct. Expand

Preliminary evidence is offered that the combination of event-related potentials and demanding behavioral measures might reveal long-lasting, subtle cognitive problems associated with MHI, which may challenge existing notions of complete recovery after MHI. Expand
Neuropsychological performance following a history of multiple self-reported concussions: A meta-analysis
The overall effect of multiple MTBI on neuropsychological functioning was minimal and not significant, however, follow-up analyses revealed that multiple self-reported MTBI was associated with poorer performance on measures of delayed memory and executive functioning. Expand
The construction of autobiographical memories in the self-memory system.
It is shown how this model can be used to draw together a wide range of diverse data from cognitive, social, developmental, personality, clinical, and neuropsychological autobiographical memory research. Expand
