After traumatic brain injury, a young man’s astounding recovery

After traumatic brain injury, a young man’s astounding …

Studies have shown that youth is a prominent factor in neuro-plasticity, the brain’s ability to form new connections to compensate for ones that get blocked or severed, to partially repair injured pathways and even to re-purpose parts of the brain. It is clear, doctors say, that young people have greater potential for co-opting undamaged parts of the brain to take on new functions than older people do.

The Silent Epidemic of Acquired Brain Injury

For many people, following injury there are obvious physical consequences, such as paralysis, weakness, fatigue, headache or problems with coordination. Many may have difficulty communicating, whether expressively or receptively, or both. For many more, it is the less outwardly visible consequences which nevertheless produce the more severe restrictions to participating in everyday life. Brain injury can affect your ability to maintain attention, to remember, to think, plan and problem solve and can hamper your insight and your ability to manage emotions. Everyday situations can be rendered almost impossible for some people with brain injury through damage to cognitive and emotional skills that the rest of us take for granted.
