“It has been suggested that degree of education may positively influence man's ability to withstand intellectual deterioration after brain injury.” This prediction was examined in a population of 62 brain-injured men and 50 controls. The results did not support the hypothesis that preinjury education and preinjury scores on a general intelligence test (AGCT) are related to magnitude of loss (on AGCT) after injury.
