A cognitive profile of South African children with traumatic brain injury

By Nancy Malgas

Abstract

Includes bibliographical references (leaves 86-105).Research conducted on pediatric populations have shown that an event such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) experienced in childhood can lead to persistent neuropsychological deficits months, even years post-injury. However, there still exists a dearth of research on pediatric TBI (pTBI), more so in developing countries like South Africa as most pediatric studies have been conducted on Western populations. This situation underlines the need for more research in the field of pTBI
