People with traumatic brain injury often have difficulty with communication and social relationships. Some of these difficulties may be because people with a brain injury sometimes have trouble recognizing and/or interpreting other people’s facial expressions and emotions. In this review, the authors found that between 13 percent and 39 percent of people with moderate to severe brain injury may have significant difficulties recognizing facial emotions.
