DOI: 10.1176/appi.books.9781585624201.683894

Sections

Excerpt

This chapter focuses on the relatively understudied area of neuropsychiatric aspects of pediatric traumatic brain injury (TBI). The chapter includes briefer sections that review neurological, neurocognitive, language, and educational aspects of pediatric TBI with specific relevance to child neuropsychiatry. Citations for review articles are provided on these topics for readers who desire more in-depth reviews of each of these areas.
