Traumatic Brain Injury

The Traumatic Brain Injury exhibit examines the causes, mechanism, symptoms, and treatment of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). There is a special focus on two common causes of TBI – military and sports injuries – as well as the most common type, mild TBI. The exhibit also features interactive elements that allow visitors to learn about normal brain anatomy and traumatic brain injuries.
