Social information processing in adolescents: data from normally developing adolescents and preliminary data from their peers with traumatic brain injury.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To assess aspects of social information processing in naturalistic conversations, using online videotape tasks. DESIGN AND PARTICIPANTS The tasks were administered to 60 normally developing (ND) subjects ages 13 to 21, and 10 adolescents with traumatic brain injury (TBI). SETTING University. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE Task accuracy scores and measures of reliability and validity. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS ND group scores were generally high, without significant differences by race, sex or age. TBI group scores were significantly lower than ND group scores for both emotion recognition and detection of conversation skills. The results are discussed in light of the evaluation of pragmatic competence in adolescents with TBI.
