A traumatic brain injury refers to an alteration in the brain’s structure and/or function as a result of a violent force on the head. It may be caused by a traumatic vehicular collision, forceful football tackle, or a moving object hitting the head.
A TBI can have varying effects on an individual’s physical, mental, and cognitive abilities. Patients with this condition can experience different kinds of symptoms depending on the nature of the impact. Additionally, the physical and psychological effects will also depend on which area of the brain got damaged or injured.
The brain is made up of several parts. Each area of the brain has the potential to get injured after a violent blow. However, some parts are more vulnerable than others. Learn more about it below.
