To examine deficits in emotion perception for adults who had experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI) during childhood and investigate relationships between emotion perception skills, empathy and Theory of Mind (ToM). Design: Participants consisted of a random selection of individuals (n=52) who had previously been recruited for a larger study. All participants had experienced an injury event as a child (0-17 years) (mild TBI, moderate/severe TBI or fractured limb) and were now aged between 18-30 years, with a minimum of 5 years post-injury.
