How Does Working Memory Capacity Impact Memory Improvement After Traumatic Brain Injury?

Each year, about 1.6 million Americans experience a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A TBI occurs when someone experiences brain damage after a head trauma, such as from a fall or a car accident. Memory problems are common, affecting more than half of people with TBI. People with TBI may have trouble learning and remembering new information, which can cause challenges in school, work, and other settings. Memory training exercises can help people with TBI improve memory. However, it would be helpful to know whether these interventions help some people with TBI more than others.


Irritability Can Be a Challenge After Traumatic Brain Injury, but There Are Ways to Cope

An estimated 5.3 million Americans are living with traumatic brain injuries (TBI), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A TBI occurs when someone experiences brain damage after a head trauma, such as from a fall or a car accident. TBI can cause a variety of long-lasting challenges, including difficulties managing feelings, thinking clearly, or processing information. As a result, many people with TBI have frequent irritability. Irritability is a tendency to get upset or annoyed easily, and it can make it hard for people with TBI to get along well with others.
