Perseveration is quite common after a brain injury. It is often seen in rehabilitation for brain injury.
We all experience perseveration to some degree. We can have thoughts that seem to run through our minds repeatedly, causing anxiety and frustration.
But these thoughts are appropriate. However, it is uncontrollable and challenging to pivot away from intrusive thoughts in brain injury patients.
Perseveration is when a brain injury patient continuously repeats words, actions, or thoughts. The cause is due to changes in their brain that affect memory, attention, and cognition.
You can do many things to support a loved one who experiences perseveation after a brain injury.
