Objective: Given the importance that prospective memory has on daily functioning, this study evaluated how prospective memory recovers overtime in individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Cognitive correlates of prospective memory were also examined. Method: Participants were 35 individuals with moderate to severe TBI who were tested acutely (i.e., following emergence from PTA), with 14 TBI participants completing a 6-month to 1-year follow-up, as well as 35 age and education matched controls at baseline and 14 at follow-up. Each participant was administered an ongoing event-based prospective memory task, as well as tests of memory, attention/processing speed, executive functioning, and language. Results: A t-test revealed that the TBI group performed significantly poorer than the control group on the prospective memory task at baseline testing; t(68) = -4.63, p = 0.001. A group by time repeated measures ANOVA for prospective memory revealed a significant main effect of group; F(1,26) = 7.01, p...
