Twenty four patients were tested on a battery of neuropsychological tests within one week of sustaining a moderate head injury. Their ability to process information rapidly was impaired in comparison with a control group that had sustained orthopaedic injuries. Differences between groups were not found on tests of intelligence and memory. This selective cognitive deficit may be due to brain damage associated with moderate head injury.
