Abstract : In the Canadian Forces (CF), injuries involving impact of the head within an enclosed space (a vehicle) are common and the possibility of cortical impact injuries in such cases is quite high. While conventional neuroimaging techniques may show normal results, cognitive problems are frequently reported by people who have sustained cortical impact or traumatic brain injury. In order to develop a comprehensive clinical diagnosis for return soldiers that might experience signs and symptoms of possible brain injury due to cortical impact, the present study aimed to compare motor vehicle accident (MVA) victims where cortical impact is prevalent to an age matched control group. All MVA victims were investigated using carefully selected neuroimaging and electrophysiological procedures together with a validated neurocognitive test battery.
