Traumatic brain injury (TBI) during critical periods of early-life brain development can affect the normal formation of brain networks responsible for a range of complex social behaviors. Because of the protracted nature of brain and behavioral development, deficits in cognitive and socioaffective behaviors may not become evident until late adolescence and early adulthood, when such skills are expected to reach maturity. In addition, multiple pre- and post-injury factors can interact with the effects of early brain insult to influence long-term outcomes. In recent years, with advancements in magnetic-resonance-based neuroimaging techniques and analysis, studies of the pediatric population ha..View full abstract
