A TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The severity of a TBI may range from “mild,” i.e., a brief change in mental status or consciousness to “severe,” i.e., an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. A TBI can cause a wide range of functional short- or long-term changes affecting:
- Thinking (i.e., memory and reasoning)
- Sensation (i.e., sight and balance)
- Language (i.e., communication, expression, and understanding)
- Emotion (i.e., depression, anxiety, personality changes, aggression, acting out, and social inappropriateness)
