Traumatic Brain Injury

Part of the Springer Series in Rehabilitation and Health book series (SSRH)


Medical scientists recognized and described traumatic brain injury (TBI) as early as 3000 B.C. (Walsh, 1978). Over the past two decades, advances in trauma evaluation (Collicott, 1991), neuroimaging (Bigler, Yeo, & Turkheimer, 1989), and neurosurgery (Adams & Victor, 1989) have greatly increased survival rates for TBI patients. Rehabilitation utilizing combined knowledge and cooperative efforts of medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, therapeutic recreation, rehabilitation psychology, neuropsychology, and social work has improved quality of lives of those survivors. Yet, our understanding of the brain and how it recovers is still in early development, and we have much to learn.
