How does damage to Temporal Lobe of your brain affect you?

Damage to the temporal lobe of the brain can have various effects on an individual, depending on the extent and location of the damage. I don’t think that the damage that I’d suffered was in this lobe, because what’s detailed …

How does damage to Parietal Lobe affect you?

The third lobe of the brain that I’ll talk about is the Parietal. Damage to the parietal lobe, which is located in the upper back part of the brain, can have various effects on an individual, depending on the extent and specific location of the damage. The parietal lobe is involved in processing and integrating sensory information from different parts of the body, as well as in spatial awareness, perception, and certain cognitive functions. In the following it’ll describe the effects, and based on what it says I don’t think I wasn’t affected there too much. Here are some potential effects of damage to the parietal lobe:

How effects does damage to the Occipital Lobe have?

The second lobe of the brain the majority of what happened to me with the crash is what happened to the Occipital lobe. That lobe located at the back of the brain, can have various effects on an individual’s visual perception and processing. The Occipital lobe plays a crucial role in interpreting and making sense of visual information received from the eyes. Click here for some of the potential effects of damage to the Occipital lobe.

How does damage to the Cerebellum affect you?

I’ve mentioned the lobes of the brain, but I didn’t explain each! Sorry, and here’s the first, and I’ll describe each the next few publication days. The Cerebellum is a very important element of your brain, because it plays a crucial role in coordinating voluntary movements, balance, and posture. Damage to the cerebellum can lead to difficulties with motor control, coordination, balance, and speech. I think, but not certain, that that’s where a significant degree of the damage to my brain occurred. As such, I’m visibly disabled in that I use either a scooter or wheelchair to move longer distances.

Can an Acquired Brain Injury cause aphasia?

What is Aphasia? It’s an awful affliction, that’s invisible. Bruce Willis was thought to suffer from it, that led to his retiring from acting. Aphasia is an impairment of language, affecting the production or comprehension of speech and the ability to read or write, and yes, an acquired brain injury (ABI) can cause aphasia. Aphasia is a language disorder that affects a person’s ability to speak, understand, read, and write. It occurs when there is damage to the language centres in the brain, typically in the left hemisphere. Why I’m posting it is that a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is another potential cause of aphasia.

How does learning to do things again after a brain injury resemble training for a marathon

I don’t remember running a marathon, but I think I was training to run one. However I did run half-marathons, and think that I can relate learning to do things after the injury to training for a marathon. Learning to do things again after a brain injury can resemble training for a marathon in several ways:

Is being a kid with a disability harder than as an adult?

I became disabled because of the crash in 2009, at 39. Things were challenging, when before they weren’t, but on the whole what I needed to do was change how I did things. Kids, on the other hand, may not be able to conceptualize that, or do it.

Here are a few considerations:
