[en] The interpretation of the data regarding cognitive outcome in children who have suffered from mild traumatic
brain injury (MTBI) remains currently controversial. The aim of the present study is to explore attentional and
executive functioning in 6–12-year-old children who experienced a MTBI. A total of 15 children with MTBI and
15 matched noninjured children participated in the study. Attentional tasks using the Test for Attentional
Performance battery were administered one year after the injury. In comparison to the noninjury children, MTBI
children performed less accurately on selective attentional and updating tasks. These preliminary findings support
the view that MTBI can have an impact on specific attentional functioning in children one year postinjury.
