For clinicians, this volume will provide easy access into the mainstream of research on traumatic brain injury in children, its pathophysiology, treatment, and outcome. For scientists specializing in cognition and development, and for those in the basic neurosciences, the studies of traumaticbrain injury discussed in this book provide a unique opportunity to relate brain structure to patterns of behavior. Modern neurodiagnostic techniques have created new possibilities for understanding the neurological basis of the diverse behavioral deficitys shown by head-injured children. Thecontributors of this volume have not only presented detailed analyses of our present state of knowledge of the diverse determinants of outcome in children with head injury, but also emphasized the gaps and limitations in our knowledge.

From the Jacket

Head trauma in children is a major public health problem. It is a leading cause of death, and it can result in a spectrum of difficulties involving cognition, academic achievement, and social interaction. Children are evolving organisms for whom a static conceptualization of outcome may cloud the effects of traumatic brain injury. This...

Editorial Reviews

"This text provides a thorough account of the current state of knowledge in pediatric head injury, emphasizing methodological problems and conceptual complexities existing in the field.... Each contributor has stressed the complexity of conducting quality pediatric head injury research and theproblems associated with the heterogeneity of the population.... This text is long overdue and most welcome."--Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
