Frontal Lobe Damage
Causes and treatment
Bio-chemical/ Neurological Psychology
A teenage boy was riding in the car with his mother when a semi crashed into their car. The boy's head smashed into the windshield. The hard impact of his head to the glass along with the quick stop, caused his brain to continue moving and striking the interior of his skull causing traumatic brain injury, or TBI (Trudel, Scherer, & Elias, 2011).
