Psychometric study of the Neurobehavioral Symptom Inventory

Paul R. King, PhD, et al.

The Neurobehavioral Symptom Inventory is the measure used to evaluate veterans’ reports of postconcussive symptoms in the Department of Veterans Affairs’ comprehensive traumatic brain injury (TBI) Evaluation. In this study, we collected data from 500 veterans of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom; 219 of these veterans had experienced at least one TBI. We found that, even many years after injury, emotional disturbances, especially symptoms consistent with probable posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, and generalized anxiety, seemed to increase ratings of common postconcussive symptoms in both the control group and the group of veterans with a TBI history.
