Abstract

This timely book reports recent progress in research on traumatic brain injury (TBI) by leading investigators encompassing translational and clinical studies. The text covers epidemiology, pathophysiology, brain imaging, cognition, behavioral sequelae, and clinical trials of innovative treatments, including new approaches to rehabilitation. The range of TBI mechanisms represented in this cutting-edge book includes closed head trauma and blast-related injury, and the spectrum of TBI severity. Chapters offer a developmental perspective, including the effects of TBI on cognitive development in children and outcome studies in adults. Contributors from various countries provide a global perspective on this worldwide health problem. The editors have synthesized the contents in a concluding chapter. Researchers and clinicians will find this volume to be an informative, authoritative reference for current TBI research.
