Transcript of Phineas Gage Research Paper
Brain Injury Treatments Traumatic Brain Injuries My report is on traumatic brain
injuries. They may be caused by serious or even simple accidents. Brain injuries can affect the way you look, act, and feel. They are common and have caused death. There are many kinds of treatments available for those who are suffering from any kind of brain injury. How can Brain Injuries Effect Personalities? A brain injury could effect someone's emotions. This could include depression or getting angry. It could change their decision-making skills. It could also change their social interactions with other people. It certainly effected Phineas Gage's personality, as well as many others. Traumatic Brain Injuries
Research Paper What Might Cause a Brain Injury, According to Age? The Injured The rod that went through Phineas's brain effected him. It went through the frontal lobe of his brain. His personality changed extremely. He was mean, terrible at making decisions, and had poor logical thinking abilites. The traumatic brain injury really should have killed him. Phineas was never really the same after the accident, although he physically recovered. Depending on your age, a brain injury might occur for a different reason. Newborns might get a brain injury because they were born premature. Kids might have an accident in sports. Teenagers could get in a car crash and get an injury. Even adults could get a brain injury because of an accident while exercising or during their job. Senior citizens are most at risk, because if they fall, they could get a fatal injury. There are different treatments for different kinds of brain injuries. As the injuries get more serious, the treatments and procedures become more intense. Special medication may be available. The patient may need to stay at the hospital overnight to be examined. If the injury is very severe, the patient may even need surgery. Also, going to speech therapy may be recommended. Small injuries may not even have a certain treatment, just some rest. Work Cited Page "Blast Brain Injury"
