This chapter addresses the effect of traumatic brain injury (TBI) on memory skills in children. To provide a framework for the discussion of the neurobehavioral consequences of TBI in children, it first offers a brief overview of memory development and some findings regarding the relation between neural structure and memory performance in children. The multicomponent nature of memory interacts with injury variables, including the severity of impaired consciousness and associated multifocal and diffuse brain insult, together with focal lesions in the frontotemporal region, to contribute to persistent memory deficit after severe TBI in children. Prefrontal dysfunction during working memory performance is also demonstrated, suggesting that active maintenance of representations is especially altered in children with TBI, implicating compromised strategy use. Early age at the time of severe TBI is related to persistent impairment of declarative memory possibly due to diffuse axonal injury and a disruption of the neural network mediating development of this ability.
