Abstract

This study examined the story grammar and executive functions of a large group of individuals who survived severe penetrating head injuries (PHI). It was hypothesized that story grammar measures would distinguish PHI (N=167) from non-brain injured (NBI) (N=46) participants. An ANOVA revealed that PHI participants had significantly lower story grammar scores. Pearson product-moment correlations were calculated for two measures of executive function and two measures of story grammar. Significant correlations were observed. Findings are consistent with those seen in adults with closed head injury.
