Scientists Explore Deficits in Processing Speed in Individuals with Spinal Cord Injury

Published: December 30, 2020

Research team finds persons with spinal cord injury and older healthy individuals have similar brain activation during processing speed tasks. Findings support the theory of accelerated cognitive aging following spinal cord injury

East Hanover, NJ. December 30, 2020. A team of rehabilitation researchers has studied processing speed deficits in individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI), comparing their brain activation patterns with those of healthy age-matched controls, and older healthy individuals. They found that the SCI group and older controls had similar activation patterns, but the SCI group differed significantly from their age-matched controls.
