      Posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms contribute to staff perceived irritability, anger, and aggression after TBI in a longitudinal veteran cohort: a VA TBI Model Systems Study.
      conducted a prospective study to examine the relationship between posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and perceived irritability, anger, and aggression in veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI).

I have some comments about their study.
