Short Tilte:Prediction of cognitive abilities 1 year following traumatic brain injury from inpatient rehabilitation cognitive screening
Year, Volume, Issue, Page(s):04, 49, 2, 167-171
Study evaluated the ability of the Cognitive Log (Cog-Log) to predict cognitive outcome 1 year after traumatic brain injury (TBI). The Cog-Log is a bedside screening measure that assesses orientation, memory, praxis, concentration, response inhibition, and executive functioning in rehabilitation inpatients. It was developed to serve as a companion to the Orientation Log (O-Log), which assesses orientation to time and place. The O-Log and Cog-Log were administered during morning rounds during acute rehabilitation and compared to the results of neuropsychological tests administered 1 year after TBI. The Cog-Log was found to significantly predict 1-year outcome in attention, executive functioning, and visuospatial abilities. The O-Log contributed significantly to memory outcome.
