Almost everything we do, say and think is controlled by our brain, so when our brain is injured, it can affect every aspect of life.
We use the term brain injury to refer to any type of brain disorder or neurological disruption which is sustained rather than developmental conditions. There are a wide range of causes and the long-term effects differ for each person.
The brain is a very complex organ comprised of many different parts. This is why brain injuries are so complex and differ for every person.
