Abstract:

The relationship between combat stress and post-concussive symptoms in service members with mild traumatic brain injuries mTBI is poorly understood. It is hypothesized that the co-occurence of combat stress would have significant effect on the severity of post-concussive complaints, specifically on emotional and cognitive symptoms.
