Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as acquired injury to the brain as a result from an external force. All of these types of brain injuries are head injuries. Any brain function that is permanently or temporarily impacted is classified as a brain injury. Victims may sustain a brain injury from an array of physical, cognitive, behavioral and emotional effects as a result of head injuries. Traumatic brain injuries can result from a direct impact to the skull and scalp. Even when there is a lack of an impact, major movement, such as violent movements within the head, can result in a brain injury.
