Experiencing any injury to your body can be serious but perhaps no type of injury holds more potential to alter a person's psychological constitution than a traumatic brain injury. That's because the brain is the warehouse for our personalities. It's where our ideas about ourselves and the world around us resides.
That's also why we can sometimes detect evidence of traumatic brain injury in certain individuals. This is largely because many TBI symptoms are so closely aligned with personal behavior and cognitive functioning. Difficulty remembering things or concentrating on certain tasks are some clues to look for in a person suspected of having suffered a TBI.
