Abstract

Attentional deficits are frequently reported by patients suffering from closed head injuries. The majority will develop a group of clinical symptoms known as post-concussion symptoms or syndromes (PCS), which are characterized by a range of subjectively experienced symptoms including headaches, dizziness, fatigue, irritability, slowed thinking, and memory dysfunction. It is posited that attentional deficit is the crucial factor for the apparent failures of memory and higher cognitive functioning, and may contribute largely to difficulty in re-integrating back into the community and resuming independent daily living. It also appears that there are large variations within these patients, in terms of both presented symptoms and neuropsychological performances. However, these variations in terms of attentional deficits have not been systematically differentiated and examined. This article aims to build up a theoretical framework to guide the investigation of the varieties of attentional deficits in patients with PCS. Current theories on attention from cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, cognitive neuroscience and clinical rehabilitation will be reviewed and integrated. It is hoped that a better understanding of the underlying mechanism of such defects will foster and guide the development of intervention.
