What is Brain Injury?

Brain injury, or brain damage as it is often referred, is the destruction of cells in the brain. It can occur due to a wide range of internal and external factors, including:

  • Road accidents
  • Strokes
  • Neurological disease
  • Respiratory failure
  • Assault

Effects of Brain Injury

The brain is involved in almost everything we do, therefore damage to it can have wide ranging effects. The effects vary from person to person, depending on the exact nature of the brain injury and its severity. This can include:

  • Physical effects, e.g. on movement, vision, touch or taste
  • Cognitive effects, e.g. on thinking processes, such as memory and concentration
  • Behavioural effects, e.g. self-control and motivation.

In most cases, individuals have to re-learn the skills they have lost as a result of their injury. This is because brain injury can impact upon cognitive processing.
