Thinking / Cognitive Symptoms
Many people have sustained a concussion and walked away only to later find that their lives are somehow different after the injury. They may not realize that their changes in mood, behavior, and thinking abilities may have been altered by TBI. Because these invisible impairments tend to go undetected, they can often plague a person's life for weeks, months, or even years.
After a brain injury occurs, a number of cognitive symptoms can occur right away, while others can arise long after the injury.
