A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain" (CDC).  This type of injury can result in various symptoms, including those assessed and treated by a neuropsychologist:  cognitive, emotional,  mood, and personality changes.  If you are experiencing persistent symptoms following a TBI, a neuropsychological evaluation may be appropriate.  Please see the FAQs section of this website for what a neuropsychological evaluation entails.  A great resource for patients and families is the Traumatic Brain Injury Survival Guide.
