The kind of changes in thinking (cognition) that a person has after a brain injury depends on many factors:
- the part(s) of the brain that was damaged
- how much damage the injury caused
- the stage of recovery
- pre-injury factors like personality, age, intelligence, education, and work background
Talk to your healthcare provider, such as an occupational therapist, speech therapist, or neuropsychologist for more ideas on how to treat changes in thinking.
