Abstract

It is estimated annually 1.7 million TBIs occur in the United States. The present study explored moderate/traumatic brain injuries (MBI/TBI) and their relation to long-term cognitive deficits. This study is modeled after (Clarke et al., 2012). In the 2012 study, the results indicated no significant differences between the control group and the traumatic brain injury group in regards to cognitive deficits: Findings that are contradictory to other studies. This study expanded on the following hypothesis: Individuals with 0-1 MBIs will show fewer cognitive deficits in their attention, memory, and information processing than participants with 2 or more MBIs. Results indicate patterns of cognitive performance that give rise to concern regarding even mild concussions.
