Abstract

It remains unclear why some individuals with mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) complain of cognitive deficits many months after the injury. Given neuropathological changes associated with prolonged stress, such as occurs with repeated sexual abuse (SA), it seems possible that individuals who experienced SA might be predisposed to greater deficitsafter MTBI. Four groups of subjects were administered measures of cognitive and emotional functioning. These groups were those with MTBI (n= 10), those with a history of SA (n = 10), those with both MTBI and SA (n = 10), and normal control (NC) subjects (n = 10). Copared to theNC subjects, those with MTBI demonstrated deficits in working memory,those with SA demonstrated deficits in executive functioning, and those with both MTBI and SA demonstrated the greatest number of deficits which were in working memory, executive functioning and memory. Tests of anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, while demonstrating significant symptoms in all clinical groups, did not correlate with the neuropsychological tests that differentiated the groups.
