A Pilot Study Examining the Relationship between Anger and Attributions of Hostile Intent after Traumatic Brain Injury August 9th, 2011

Dawn Neumann (PI), Flora Hammond, MD (Co-PI), funded by the Indiana Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Research Fund and the National Institute of Disability Rehabilitation and Research (NIDRR), Mary E. Switzer Merit Fellowship.

After a traumatic brain injury (TBI) it is common to have long-lasting problems with anger and aggression. These emotional and behavioral problems are tough to treat and often impact many other life aspects, including relationships and community participation to name a few. The purpose of this study is to determine if some people with TBI are more likely to negatively misinterpret other peoples’ behavior, and whether or not this is related to anger and aggression. This study is expected to help us learn why people with TBI might have problems with anger and aggression, which is important for figuring out how to treat these problems. For this study, we will recruit 46 people with moderate to severe TBI, who are at least six months post-injury and between the ages of 18 and 65 years old. Study participants will be asked to read short paragraphs describing other’s behaviors and then answer questions about their feelings and interpretations of the behaviors.
