In brief: Yes
Texas researchers have found that patients with long-standing but stable traumatic brain injury (tbi) show a general improvement in speech, memory and attention after undergoing a series of hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments.
Dr. Paul harch and colleagues presented their findings in seattle at the undersea and hyperbaric medical society annual scientific meeting.

In brief: This is an issue
Which is under study.
This is not an fda indication for use of hbot. Although some studies have suggested positive results with use of hbot s/p brain injury - i don't think there are enough data to make conclusions at this point.

In brief: Hyperbarics Strokes
There is no evidence that hyperbaric oxygen works on these types of problems.
There are specialists that do offer this therapy to patients but you should ask about the research results before committing to this treatment regimen. Medicare does not cover this indication, so the personal cost and professional profit can be large.
