Collaborative Study of Impaired Self-awareness after Traumatic Brain Injury (CSISATBI)

Abstract:
The CSISATBI conducted the first large-scale, prospective longitudinal study of impaired self-awareness' (ISA) neural substrates, neuropsychological features, natural history, and relationship to functional and quality-of-life outcomes over the first year following moderate to severe TBI. Extensive data on self-awareness, injury characteristics, neuropsychological status, and various outcomes were collected on 177 persons with TBI. Three papers have already been published and additional papers are in progress. Findings published to this point show that impaired self-awareness is common after TBI and is a significant factor in influencing outcome from TBI.
