A Traumatized Species:

The reader will find in the drop down menu different aspects of the traumatized brain or central nervous system.  By putting these categories together we are offering the perspective that a physical blow is not that different from a high fever, brain anoxia during birth, chemical insult, or being exposed to death, tragedy or extreme violence.  All take their toll on our CNS functioning, have their own symptoms and lead to other impairments.

Sometimes TBI and PTSD are found together as in war, or Returned Soldier Syndrome.  See our special discussions of these topics
