[ARTICLE] Categorizing Cognitive Performance in Traumatic Brain Injury Using Multiple Correspondence Analysis

Results indicate that patterns of cognitive deficits can be found in individuals who have suffered certain types of head injuries, particularly blast related injuries.The mechanism of blast type injuries, the initial shockwave and subsequent accelaration-decelaration shearing forces, could account for increased poor performance in these individuals.The analysis also indicates that poor performance in tests of immediate and delayed recall may be effected by blast related head injuries.Supplementary projections of GOSE scores were not as evenly distributed across the factor space along the first component, which suggests that scores may not represent the level of cognitive performance in the study sample, particularly for high performing participants.This analysis demonstrates that multiple correspondence analysis is a useful tool in determining the structure of the data and can be used to detect particular deficits in certain subgroups of individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury. 18 more words
