Vietnamís Neuroscientific Legacy

We've heard quite a bit about brain trauma in connection to vets of Iraq and Afghanistan. I ran across this article describing the contributions an earlier generation of wounded soldiers toward understanding not only their own injuries but other as well. I hope you find it interesting.

he Vietnam Head Injury Study, as it is now known, has allowed researchers to track the long-term consequences of head injuries, identify the factors that influence recovery, and even map the cognitive architecture of the brain. This year alone, Grafman has published papers on the neural basis of social problem-solving, pathological aggression after brain damage, and the relationship between caregiver style and cognitive declineóall based on Cavenessís research. The study has yielded more than one hundred scientific papers so far and is likely to yield many more. ďItís the gift that keeps on giving,Ē Grafman said.
