Deficient learning and memory are frequently reported as a consequence of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Because of the diffuse nature of the injury, patients with TBI are not the ideal group for studying brain-behavior relations. Nevertheless, characterization of the memory breakdown following TBI could contribute to the assessment and rehabilitation of this patient population. It is well documented that memory is not a unitary system. Accordingly, in this article I review studies that have… Expand
The Effects of Moderate-to-Severe Traumatic Brain Injury on Episodic Memory: a Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The results indicate that verbal Memory, and more specifically Verbal Recall, is most sensitive to the effects of moderate-to-severe TBI. Expand
Neuropsychology of traumatic brain injury: An expert overview.
TLDR
A selective review of recent findings on the epidemiology, pathophysiology and neuropsychological impairments following TBI finds that patients who survive moderate-to-severe TBI frequently suffer from a wide range of cognitive deficits and behavioral changes due to diffuse axonal injury. Expand
Cognitive deficits after traumatic coma.
TLDR
A survey of the main neuropsychological studies of patients with remote severe TBI finds that patients have difficulties in dealing with two simultaneous tasks, or with tasks requiring both storage and processing of information, at least if these tasks require some degree of controlled processing. Expand
Procedural Memory Following Moderate-Severe Traumatic Brain Injury: Group Performance and Individual Differences on the Rotary Pursuit Task
TLDR
Assessment of procedural memory in individuals with TBI across a larger battery of tasks in experimental and clinical setting revealed that there were high individual differences in both groups, indicating that some individuals might not be able to take advantage of treatment methods designed to leverage intact procedural memory system. Expand
Memory Dysfunctions after Mild and Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury : Comparison between Patients with and without Frontal Lobe Injury.
TLDR
Different kinds of assessment tools are needed for the measurement of memory abilities in TBI patients with FLI, and that the selection of the appropriate tool depends on the severity of the TBI. Expand
Traumatic Brain Injury and Cognition
TLDR
The chapter reviews some neuroimaging findings that demonstrate brain damage and how such neuropathology relates to changes in physical functioning, cognition, and behavior, and how brain injuries may affect different domains of cognitive and behavioral functioning. Expand
Consolidation deficits in traumatic brain injury: The core and residual verbal memory defect
TLDR
Previous findings were replicated in support of an impaired consolidation hypothesis as the primary deficit underlying memory impairment in TBI, reflected in relatively more rapid forgetting through 1 year post injury and relatively less proactive interference up to 6 months post injury. Expand
Cognitive contributions to differences in learning after moderate to severe traumatic brain injury
TLDR
Working memory significantly influences the ability to learn verbal information after TBI, and the documented relationship between working memory and learning will guide the development of more efficacious treatments to rehabilitate learning and memory deficits after TBO. Expand
Neuroimaging and Psychometric Assessment of Mild Cognitive Impairment After Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Non-negligible cognitive and affective impairments following TBI are highlighted, their gravity often increasing with injury severity, and efforts should aim to develop and standardize batteries for cognitive subdomains—rather than only domains—with high ecological validity. Expand
The Montreal Cognitive Assessment in Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury
The objective of this study was to examine the performance of patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA). The MoCA was administered to 214 patients withExpand

Performance of individuals with severe long-term traumatic brain injury on time-, event-, and activity-based prospective memory tasks.
TLDR
This study found that participants with TBI performed significantly worse than did controls on all three prospective-memory tasks, indicating that TBI affects not only retrospective but also prospective memory. Expand
Effects of Severe Traumatic Brain Injury on Visual Memory
TLDR
The individuals with TBI (late- and early-recovery) were found to be impaired on the SVLT and the RAVLT but not on the electronic Maze, which measures the ability to remember spatial positions. Expand
Everyday memory following traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
Investigating the interrelationships between subjective memory reports, performance on traditional memory tests, and performance on tests of prospective memory provided preliminary evidence that prospective memory tests are sensitive to TBI-related neurological impairment and, in comparison to traditional tests, may be better indicators of functional memory capacity. Expand
Functional reorganisation of memory after traumatic brain injury: a study with H2150 positron emission tomography
TLDR
The TBI patients performed memory tasks using altered functional neuroanatomical networks that are probably the result of diffuse axonal injury and may reflect either cortical disinhibition attributable to disconnection or compensation for inefficient mnemonic processes. Expand
Neuropsychological functioning during the year following severe traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
Improvement was found to occur in all areas of cognitive functioning over the first year following injury, indicating that different aspects of cognition are more susceptible to injury, and that recovery takes place at a differential rate across functions. Expand
Verbal Learning and Memory Deficits in Traumatic Brain Injury: Encoding, Consolidation, and Retrieval
TLDR
Data support an impaired consolidation hypothesis, rather than encoding or retrieval deficits, as the primary deficit underlying memory impairment in TBI. Expand
Long-Term Consequences of Severe Closed Head Injury on Episodic Memory
This is the first systematic investigation of the very long-term effects of severe closed head injury (CHI) on objective measures of memory, and the first to employ both a normal control group and anExpand
Functional magnetic resonance imaging of working memory impairment after traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
Impairment of working memory in TBI seems to be associated with alterations in functional cerebral activity, particularly in the frontal lobes. Expand
Neuropsychological consequences of two patterns of brain damage shown by MRI in survivors of severe head injury.
TLDR
Patients with both diffuse and focal patterns of injury were impaired by comparison with controls on a range of measures, including tests of memory and attention, contrasting with the view that diffuse injury is of much greater importance than focal injury in determining outcome after head injury. Expand
Retrograde Memory Deficits in Severe Closed-Head Injury Patients
TLDR
No clear relationship emerges between severity of the retrograde memory deficit and locus of focal cerebral lesions as demonstrated by neuroradiological exams. Expand
