With six additional chapters, this edition covers: Post-concussive syndrome, biomechanical causes of trauma, and acute and chronic phases of co-morbid brain and somatic injury The physiological basis for behavior and posttraumatic dysregulation of systems Disorders related to pain, sensation, and motor activities Headaches, consciousness, cognition, cerebral personality, and psychodynamic disorders Developmental effects of children's concussive injury Blast injuries characteristic of modern war Unfamiliar signs not included in the usual list of post-concussive symptoms With a firm multi-disciplinary foundation, this book aids the concerned practitioner in rendering a more complete and accurate assessment, recognizing gaps in prior documentation, and conducting a more complete examination to acquire omitted information. It also shows how to achieve the benefit of higher accuracy in assessing disability, planning rehabilitation, and offering compensation. The book stands alone as an in-depth, authoritative guide to closed head injury and traumatic brain injury.
