Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Executive function (EF) deficits following traumatic brain injury (TBI) negatively affect independence in daily living. The use of performance-based assessments are recommended. This cross-sectional study compared the performance of the Internet-based bill-paying task in adults with TBI to healthy adults and correlated this task to WebNeuro computerized assessment and independence in daily living. The bill-paying task has construct and initial criterion validity to assess EF deficits after TBI.
