Abstract provided by Publisher
The goal of this article is to present the results of research on cognitive and emotional disturbances in patients with the “whiplash” injuries typically incurred as a result of rear-end collisions. Despite considerable controversy and discussion surrounding the whiplash syndrome the most recent literature on the subject contains several reports suggesting that many of these patients complain of specific symptoms that are not only physical, but also cognitive, emotional, and even linguistic, the existence of which can be detected by standard neuropsychological tests. In their own research involving 58 patients with late “whiplash” syndrome and an equal number of normals, the authors have confirmed the occurrence of objective symptoms in various tests. The discussion considers the etiology of these symptoms in various tests. The discussion considers the etiology of these symptoms and the significance of the results for rehabilitation.
