Takeaway

  • Brain tissue atrophy is mainly concentrated in a fronto-temporo-thalamic network following traumatic brain injury (TBI) in children.

Why this matters

  • TBI is the leading cause of acquired disability in children, with 10–20% of cases resulting in long-term deficits in cognition, behavior, and educational achievements.
