Although the adverse consequences of changes in social behavior following traumatic brain injury (TBI) are well documented, relatively little is known about possible underlying neuropsychological deficits. Following a model originally developed for social behavior deficits in schizophrenia, we investigated whether impairments in emotion recognition, understanding of other people's intentions (“theory of mind”), and cognitive flexibility soon after first TBI or 1 year later were associated with… 
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.
Impact of traumatic brain injury on social cognition in adolescents and contribution of other higher order cognitive functions
TLDR
The findings suggest the presence of primary deficits in social cognition following TBI in adolescence could partially underlie the social reintegration difficulties encountered after TBI.

TLDR
There is evidence that facets of social cognition are impaired in this population of TBI patients, and research into remediation needs to be guided by the growing empirical base for understanding social cognition that may yet reveal how deficits dissociate following TBI.
Social cognition and its relationship to functional outcomes in patients with sustained acquired brain injury
TLDR
The findings of this pilot study suggest that the degree to which a patient can predict what others are thinking is an important measure that can estimate functional outcomes over 1 year following TBI.
Exploring theory of mind after severe traumatic brain injury
Hyposmia, not emotion perception, is associated with psychosocial outcome after severe traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
The results support previous claims that hyposmia has prognostic significance following TBI and suggest that standardized emotion perception tasks may underestimate the emotion perception capabilities of people with TBI.
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
Theory of Mind Impairments Highlighted With an Ecological Performance-Based Test Indicate Behavioral Executive Deficits in Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
This study is the first to find association between impairment in mentalizing abilities in the MASC and behavioral impairments in patients with TBI, confirming the added value of this ecological task and that the recognition of social signals is a key element for adequate behavioral functioning.

Neuropsychological Impairments and Changes in Emotional and Social Behaviour Following Severe Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Compared to matched healthy controls, patients with severe TBI were impaired at recognising facial and vocal expressions of emotions, detecting social faux pas and nonverbal fluency, but none of these impairments was significantly associated with the relatives' ratings of behavioural problems following TBI.

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.
Executive Function and Self‐awareness of “Real‐world” Behavior and Attention Deficits Following Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Although executive function was associated with ISA in this sample, further research is needed to determine whether executive function deficits contribute in a causal fashion to ISA, and which of the cognitive operations within executive function are responsible for supporting self-awareness.
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.

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.
Social perception deficits after traumatic brain injury: interaction between emotion recognition, mentalizing ability, and social communication.
TLDR
The TBI group had marked difficulty judging most facets of social information and could recognize speaker beliefs only when this information was explicitly provided, and emotion recognition and first-order theory of mind judgments were not related to the ability to understand social (conversational) inference.
Self-awareness after traumatic brain injury: a comparison of measures and their relationship to executive functions.
TLDR
Evaluation of awareness by the Dysexecutive (DEX) Questionnaire self-other rating scale with the Self-Awareness of Deficits Interview (SADI) indicated significant, albeit marginal relationships between the two measures, and better correlation of the SADI with measures of frontal lobe functioning.
Emotional and behavioral adjustment after traumatic brain injury.
Impairments in theory of mind shortly after traumatic brain injury and at 1-year follow-up.
TLDR
Compared with the orthopedic control group, the TBI group was impaired on ToM and executive functioning tasks at both assessments, and the ToM impairments in the T BI group remained stable over time.
