Traumatic Brain Injury

Research for Better Understanding

Each year 1.7 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is an important public health problem in the United States.

TBI is frequently referred to as the "silent epidemic" because the complications from TBI, such as changes affecting thinking, sensation, language, or emotions, may not be readily apparent. In addition, awareness about TBI among the general public is limited.
