Abstract

In this review, we discuss the consequences to the brain s cortex, specifically to the sensory cortex, of traumatic brain injury. The thesis underlying this approach is that long-term deficits in cognition seen after brain damage in humans are likely underpinned by an impaired cortical processing of the sensory information needed to drive cognition or to be used by cognitive processes to produce a response. We take it here that the impairment to sensory processing does not arise from damage to peripheral sensory systems but from disordered brain processing of sensory input.
