Coelho, Carl and Lê, Karen and Mozeiko, Jennifer and Tyler, Elizabeth and Krueger, Frank and Grafman, Jordan (2012) Characterizing discourse deficits following penetrating head injury. [Clinical Aphasiology Paper]
Discourse analyses have demonstrated utility for delineating subtle, non-aphasic communication deficits following diffuse axonal damage secondary to closed head injuries (CHI). The present investigation utilized discourse analyses for individuals with multi-focal cortical, subcortical, and white matter lesions resulting from penetrating head injuries (PHI). Story narratives were analyzed from two groups of participants, 167 survivors of PHIs and 46 non-injured individuals. Three measures distinguished the groups: narrative length, story grammar, and completeness. Results are consistent with previous findings for CHI participants, specifically that macro-structural/organizational measures best characterize discourse deficits following PHI.
