Contact forces cause focal injuries (scalp contusion, skull fracture, epidural hemorrhage), whereas acceleration-deceleration (primarily rotational forces) result in diffuse injuries (eg, subdural hemorrhage, diffuse axonal injury, intermediate contusion).
Deficits associated with diffuse injuries include: reduced speed and capacity of information processing; difficulties with complex attention; impaired memory and learning; and problems with abstract thinking.
