In the past two decades we have seen a plethora of studies examining the psychological sequelae of closed head injury. This in itself represented an important step, where previously the emphasis had been on documenting survival statistics and residual physical disability. The earlier psychological studies, such as those conducted by Brooks and his colleagues [1] and Levin and his colleagues [2], focused largely on cognitive functions, including intelligence, language, memory and perception, following the localizationist models of neuropsychology which predominated at the time.
