Level of Executive Functioning Related to Outcome Post-TBI

A brief summary of current research.

Association Between Cognitive Performance and Functional Outcome Following Traumatic Brain Injury: A Longitudinal Multilevel Examination

Spitz, G, Ponsford, J, Rudzki, D, & Maller, JJ (2012). Neuropsychology, Vol 26(5), pp. 604-612.

Extensive research has found that certain characteristics such as age, education level, and length of post-traumatic amnesia are related to how well a person fares after brain injury. This study confirmed these findings; however, it also found that a person’s cognitive abilities, especially executive functions, were a better predictor of the rate and amount of recovery.

this is so untrue. I was sharp as sharp prior to my concussion, I was my team leader at work and had the world in my hand. Now I have executive functioning issues and sensory overload issues and in vision therapy.
