Latest update from our client, Neulife about Why do Some TBI Patients Experience Personality Changes?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can lead to many physical problems like impaired memory, frequent headaches, dizziness, and balance issues. However, TBI may also cause personality changes and this is something that many patients grapple with.

Fifty-nine percent of the subjects in a study in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation presented significant personality change after experiencing a traumatic brain injury. The most obvious of these changes include “neuroticism, extraversion, and conscientiousness,” particularly in patients with frontal and temporal lesions.

In a more recent study published in the American Journal Health of Behavior, students active in sports who have experienced concussion showed a higher risk for depressive symptoms, self-harm, and poor mental health. Thus, a psychological evaluation following a TBI is essential to facilitate a better treatment plan for the patient.
