Abstract Introduction: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of chronic neurologic disability. Damage often affects the frontal lobes, and thus the most frequent cognitive sequelae are deficits in the prefrontal cortex (PFC)-dependent functions, such as attention, working memory, social behavior, mental flexibility, and task switching.
