Abstract:
Study compared neuropsychological functioning between individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) and those with mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). Data were collected prospectively on 33 matched pairs of individuals with SCI or mild TBI. On 5 of the 10 neuropsychological measures administered, no meaningful group differences were identified. On the remaining measures, significantly better performance was noted for the SCI sample.
