More than 75% of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) seeking medical attention are mild, and the outcome of mild TBI (mTBI) is heterogeneous. Currently we are in badly need of the methods of classifying mTBI into more homogeneous subgroups since there is not a sensitive and valid biomarker identified right now. In current study, we aim to investigate whether different subgroups exist in a large cohort patients and to predict neuropsychological outcome in the future.
