Traumatic brain injury (TBI), or an intracranial injury, is a complex injury that occurs when an external force injures the brain. In the United States, approximately 1.4 million people experience a TBI each year. The damage to the brain may be focal, limited to one area of the brain, or diffuse, affecting more than one area of the brain. The symptoms of a TBI may be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent of damage. Even a mild traumatic brain injury may cause permanent dysfunction of brain cells. Traumatic brain injuries can cause personality and behavioral problems and significantly hamper activities of daily living.
