What is a Brain Injury?
Understanding an Injury
Your brain is a very complex organ that contains billions of cells that make trillions of connections. Your brain relies on these connections to form networks that are wired in a specific way for each of the things you do like breathing, hearing, thinking, and feeling. Brain injury results when these networks and connections are disrupted or damaged.
Know the Symptoms
Traumatic brain injury can have wide-ranging physical and psychological effects. Some signs or symptoms may appear immediately after the traumatic event, while others may appear days or weeks later.
