Factors associated with neurocognitive performance in OIF/OEF servicemembers with postconcussive complaints in postdeployment clinical settings

Douglas B. Cooper, PhD, et al.

Cognitive difficulties are commonly reported in servicemembers with a history of mild traumatic brain injury following combat deployments, but many questions remain about which factors (for example, combat stress, blast exposure, pain) cause these difficulties. Correctly identifying which factors (or combinations of factors) cause the cognitive difficulties can help researchers develop more effective treatments for individuals in postdeployment settings. Our study found that effort and symptom complaints were most associated with cognitive difficulties. These results underscore the importance of assessing effort in the comprehensive evaluation of postdeployment conditions.
