Abstract: The relationship between traumatic brain injury (TBI) and psychosis, and the phenomenology of psychosis following traumatic brain injury (PFTBI), is poorly understood. Impaired neurocognition has long been empirically established following TBI and in patients with psychosis suggesting that dually-diagnosed PFTBI patients are susceptible to substantial neurocognitive deficits. Moreover, while there appears to be some overlap in the neurocognitive deficits associated with TBI and schizophrenia patient groups, they appear distinct in profile, providing impetus for elucidating PFTBI-specific deficits.
