Child Victims of Brain Injuries Likely to Suffer Lasting Consequences

By Alpert Schreyer on December 13, 2012

A new report by The Journal of Neuroscience has highlighted the effects of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) on a child. The brains of children are apparently more vulnerable to a TBI’s effects than the brain of adults, as reported by CBS Local.

Child Brain Injury

Results found by the study showed that child TBI victims are much more likely to be dealing with the aftermath of their injury long after the accident than adults. By using cognitive testing and advanced brain imaging on child TBI victims, the research found that injury victims with prior concussions still had evidence of structural brain damage as much as four months after the injury.

While this can affect all children, the study was seen as a clear warning to child athletes, as they have the risk of suffering multiple concussions in a relatively short span of time. With the recovery time far greater for children, it is more likely that young athletes will suffer compounding effects that can result in serious and permanent losses.

A traumatic brain injury can have a wide variety of consequences on a victim, both in the short term and long term. Often, victims will experience sudden loss of physical and mental capabilities immediately following their injuries. And while this can be treated with prompt medical care, these may not immediately end. Severe brain trauma can lead to victims having permanent losses when it comes to their physical capabilities, mental abilities, and emotional regulations. All of these can cause major complications for both personal relationships and a professional future.
