The neuropsychiatry of depression after brain injury

In this paper we review several aspects of depression after brain injury that are of particular relevance to the biological origins of depressive symptoms, their impact on risk management and their drug treatment. Much of the research on mood disorders in ABI has been conducted on traumatic brain injury (TBI) and stroke. Other forms of acquired brain injury have received relatively little attention. This has inevitably meant that this review will focus primarily on studies in TBI and stroke.
