Welcome to our second issue of the 2009 Perspectives in Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders. This is a particularly timely publication in that the focus is on management of cognitive-communicative disorders associated with blast injury. Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is considered the signature injury of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF). It is likely that many of our division affiliates have been treating veterans with mTBI. For those who do not work with individuals with mTBI, this issue will provide insights into difficulties affecting many of our veterans.
We extend our thanks to Carole Roth, Issue Editor, for bringing together this fine collection of articles. Sandra Schneider and colleagues have offered an overview of an interdisciplinary management approach for combat veterans with mTBI and post-traumatic stress disorder. Christine Parrish and colleagues have addressed issues concerning assessment of mTBI sustained in combat and have presented preliminary impressions of the utility of their assessment protocol developed and utilized at the Naval Medical Center San Diego. Michael de Riesthal has provided an informative discussion of various considerations in the treatment of cognitive-communicative disorders following blast injury. We are very grateful to all of these authors for their contributions to our continuing education.
