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.
