In brief: ForcefulBrain injury
Traumatic brain injury (tbi) is a nondegenerative, noncongenital insult to the brain from an external mechanical force, possibly leading to permanent or temporary impairment of cognitive, physical, and psychosocial functions, with an associated diminished or altered state of consciousness.
The definition of tbi has not been consistent and tends to vary according to specialties and circumstances.
