Abstract
Patients with traumatic brain injury often complain of impairments of attention and information processing in the absence of apparent neurological signs. We studied visual saccade distractibility in a group of patients within 24 hours after a minor traumatic head injury ( MTHI). A dual-task paradigm was applied. The results did not demonstrate any evidence of saccade distractibility as a specific effect of MTHI. These findings suggest that saccade inhibitory processing deficits may not be involved in the attention difficulties in acute MTHI.
