A case analysis of a person with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is presented in detail. The analysis employs the coordination allocation of resource (CAR) model of brain functioning and the activation quantitative EEG analysis of brain response patterns. This model states that individual cognitive tasks involve specific frequencies and locations for successful performance and employs a flashlight metaphor for conceptualization of spectral correlation coefficient relationships between locations. The employment of this model in this specific case resulted in dramatic improvements in auditory memory (+5.4 standard deviations) as well as other improvements in cognitive functioning, albeit not all cognitive functioning skills.
