Traumatic brain injury affects 1.7 million people in the U.S. every year. The consequences of a brain injury can affect all aspects of a patient’s life. One type of fallout often observed with brain injury is a social impairment arising from an inability to recognize facial affect. Recent research shows that this impairment is attenuated for female patients, even though they are equally impaired as males on other tests.
