Head injury tied to long-term attention issues in kids
from HealthDay News
Children who suffer even mild brain injuries may experience momentary lapses in attention long after their accident, new research finds. The study of 6- to 13-year-olds found these attention lapses led to lower behavior and intelligence ratings by their parents and teachers. These lapses in focus were apparent even when scans showed no obvious brain damage, the researchers said.
