The consequences of a brain injury can affect all aspects of our lives, including our personality. Brain injuries do not heal like other injuries and symptoms may appear right away or may not be present for days or weeks after the injury. This issue will include Past, Present, and Future of TBI research; Pathophysiology of TBI; Advances in brain imaging of TBI; and many more articles leading up to Degenerative Disease following Traumatic Brain Injury.
