In addition, it also aims to identify dissociations and the frequency of deficits in executive functions (EF) tasks, that mainly assess decision making (DM – hot component) and inhibition (cold component), following TBI.
The sample was comprised of 16 post-TBI adults aged between 18 and 68 years and of 16 healthy controls, matched by age and education.
They were assessed by means of Iowa Gambling Task (IGT) for DM evaluation, Trail Making Task (TMT) and Hayling Test for inhibitory control assessment.
There were no differences between groups regarding the performance on IGT, total and block scores.
However, T...
