Impaired self-awareness after moderately severe to severe traumatic brain injury
Patients with moderately severe to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) can demonstrate disturbances in self-awareness several months or years after injury. Patients may underreport cognitive and behavioral difficulties, which are the true residuals of their brain injury. Increasingly, research indicates that the residuals of these disturbances in consciousness greatly affect the process and outcome of rehabilitation. A recent model for conceptualizing disturbances of self-awareness after various forms of brain injury is reviewed. © 2005 Springer-Verlag.
