The psychological effects that can result from a traumatic brain injury
Following a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, the injured person can experience a variety of psychological effects, including change of personality, loss of impulse control, decreased judgment and depression. The depression may be a result of the brain injury, or it can be a reaction to other symptoms. Other effects can include speech and communication difficulties, memory loss, a feeling of disorientation, anger and lack of perception.
Victims of TBI often have difficulties adjusting to these changes during their recovery. What used to come naturally to them might now be a struggle. The recovery process can be exhausting—not only physically, but emotionally, as well.
