Parent-child interactions may be affected by early childhood traumatic brain injury (TBI). Given that relational quality is the result of both parent and child emotional and behavioral dispositions, it remains unclear whether observed changes in the quality of interactions post-TBI come from one or the other of the contributing parties. The aim of this study was to investigate the factors that contribute to the quality of parent-child interactions following TBI in the preschool years.

Visuospatial attention networks are represented in both hemispheres, with right-hemisphere dominance. Little is known about the lateralization of the attention networks in children. The objective of the current study was to generate an adaptation of the Attention Network Test for Children (ANT-C) (Rueda et al., 2004) and the Lateralized Attention Network Test (LANT) (Greene et al., 2008) to create a children’s version of the latter (LANT-C).
