Abstract

This study examined how well executive function (EF) and memory measures predict performance on measures of story goodness (story completeness and story grammar) following traumatic brain injury (TBI).  It was hypothesized that EF and memory measures would significantly predict discourse outcomes.  167 individuals with TBI participated.  Cognitive measures (D-KEFS Sorting Test, WMS-III Working Memory Primary Index Score and Immediate Memory Primary Index Score) were entered into a regression model for each discourse measure.  Results indicated that only the Sorting Test and immediate memory measures were significant predictors.  Findings suggest discourse ability draws upon a number of underlying skills.
