The Impact of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Causes, Effects, and Symptoms of TBI

TBI can be acquired in many ways and can be life-altering or even fatal if left untreated. According to the CDC, moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries can lead to a lifetime of physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral changes. People with TBI are also more likely to abuse alcohol or illicit drugs and die from seizures, accidental drug poisoning, infections, and pneumonia.

RESILIENT YOUNG BRAINS

RESILIENT YOUNG BRAINS
The younger and more resilient you are, the more cognitive function you are likely to recover following a mild to severe traumatic brain injury, according to an Australian study published in the Journal of Neurotrauma. The researchers found that age and IQ were much more important for cognitive recovery than the length of time people experienced post traumatic amnesia following the injury.
