Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI

When a part of the brain is damaged after a traumathe (your) brain rewires what it can’t repair. 

Just like the rest of the human body, you can get better...

but it will take practice,  patience (‘heaps’) and time in (re)learning and re-programming these new neural pathways.”

“THE JOURNALIST “… REVEALING AND INTERESTING "INTERVIEWS"

Citizens are going to have to separate once and for all the false identification of American and Christian ideals. They may overlap from time to time, but they are not the same.

V8 Supercars (Australia): One of my great passions

Craig L

Karting was the starting point for the talented youngster, who quickly showed the potential to rise through the ranks, winning the national Formula Ford title in 1993 and the Formula Holden Silver Star class in 1994.

That success put him on the radar of prominent V8 Supercar team, Holden Racing Team (HRT), with Lowndes earning a drive in the endurance races and finishing second on debut at Bathurst in 1994.

Craig joined HRT fulltime in 1996 and was an instant success. He won his first-ever championship round and went on to become the youngest ever Australian Touring Car Champion, also winning the marquee Sandown 500 and Bathurst 1000 events as well.

Motorsport: Keep it simple

6 Mar

Simple, they could learn so much from V8 Supercars! Instead of pursuing advancements in technology purely for their own sake. They forget its a sport and people want entertainment. Well said, Bob!

Based on Research by TBI Model Systems

What is cognition?

Cognition is the act of knowing or thinking. It includes the ability to choose, understand, remember and use information. Cognition includes:

  • Attention and concentration
  • Processing and understanding information
  • Memory
  • Communication
  • Planning, organizing, and assembling
  • Reasoning, problem-solving, decision-making, and judgment
  • Controlling impulses and desires and being patient

How does TBI affect cognition and what can be done about it?

After a TBI it is common for people to have problems with attention, concentration, speech and language, learning and memory, reasoning, planning and problem-solving.

Attention and concentration

A person with TBI may be unable to focus, pay attention, or attend to more than one thing at a time. This may result in:

  • Restlessness and being easily distracted.
  • Difficulty finishing a project or working on more than one task at a time.
