PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to verify the reliability and validity of the Japanese version of the Coma Recovery Scale-Revised (CRS-R). METHODS: Subjects included 59 patients with disorders of consciousness (DOC) due to acquired brain injury. To validate test-retest reliability, Evaluator A assessed the CRS-R twice on the same day (A1, A2). To examine inter-rater reliability, Evaluators A (A2) and B (B) assessed the CRS-R without a time interval. To test concurrent validity, Evaluator A (A1) assessed the CRS-R, Japan Coma Scale (JCS), and the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) consecutively...

BACKGROUND: Paediatric acquired brain injury is a life-long condition which impacts on all facets of the individual's lived experience. The existing evidence base continues to expand and new fields of enquiry are established as clinicians and researchers uncover the extent of these impacts. PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: To add to recommendations described in the International Paediatric Brain Injury Society's 2016 paper on post-acute care for children with acquired brain injury and highlight new areas of enquiry...

OBJECTIVE: Metacognition and quality of life (QoL) are both adversely affected by traumatic brain injury (TBI), but the relation between them is not fully understood. As such, the purpose of this study was to determine the degree to which metacognitive accuracy predicts QoL in individuals with TBI. METHODS: Eighteen participants with moderate-to-severe TBI completed a stimulus-response task requiring the discrimination of emotions depicted in pictures of faces and then provided a retrospective confidence judgment after each response...

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: We evaluated whether photobiomodulation with red/near infrared light applied transcranially via light emitting diodes (LED) was associated with reduced symptoms and improved cognitive functioning in patients with chronic symptoms following mild traumatic brain injury. RESEARCH DESIGN: Participants (3 men, 6 women; 22-61 years-old) underwent a 6-week intervention involving 18 40-minute transcranial LED treatment sessions. METHODS AND PROCEDURES: Reliable change indices were calculated for 10 neuropsychological test scores and 3 self-report questionnaires of subjective cognition, post-concussion symptoms, and depression at baseline and following treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the independent effect of age on baseline neurocognitive performance. STUDY DESIGN: Baseline ImPACT scores from tests taken by 7454 athletes aged 12-22 from 2009 to 2019 were split into three age cohorts: 12-14 years (3244), 15-17 years (3732), and 18-22 years (477). Linear regression analyses were used to evaluate the effect of age on ImPACT composite scores while controlling for demographic differences, medication-use, and symptom burden...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this scoping review was to identify behavioral disturbances exhibited by patients in post-traumatic amnesia (PTA). While behavioral disturbances are common in PTA, research into their presentation and standardized measures for their assessment are limited.

OBJECTIVE: The LIMBIC Military and Tactical Athletic Research Study (MATARS) framework was established to confirm and extend understanding of concussion with initial studies driven by clinical data collected between 2015 and 2020 in a collegiate sports setting. The LIMBIC MATARS framework will be leveraged to apply gold-standard and innovative research designs to advance the science of concussion. This manuscript provides the background, methodology, and initial demographic data associated with the LIMBIC MATARS...

OBJECTIVE: A study confirmed that sodium aescinate (SA) can effectively relieve bone cancer pain, but its role in neuropathic pain (NP) remains confused. METHODS: Eighty male mice were randomly divided into four groups: sham+vehicle, sham+SA (40 μg/L, intrathecal injection), chronic contraction injury (CCI)+vehicle, CCI+SA. Behavioral assessments were used to evaluate the locomotor activity and paw withdrawal threshold (PWT) of mice. At the end of the study, spinal cord tissues were collected for histopathological analysis...

BACKGROUND: Individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) are at increased risk of depression and anxiety, leading to impaired recovery. While cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) addresses anxiety and depression maintenance factors, its efficacy among those with TBI has not been clearly demonstrated. This review aims to bridge this gap in the literature. METHODS: Several databases, including Medline, PsycInfo and EMBASE, were used to identify studies published between 1990 and 2021...

INTRODUCTION: Over 100 million people worldwide live with disabilities resulting from an acquired brain injury (ABI). ABI survivors experience cognitive and physical problems and require support to resume an active life. They can benefit from support from someone who has been through the same issues (i.e. peer mentor). This review investigated the effectiveness of peer mentoring for ABI survivors. METHOD: Eleven databases, two trial registers, and PROSPERO were searched for published studies...
