Every year in the United States over 1.5 million people suffer from traumatic brain injuries and 50,000 people die from injuries to the brain. A traumatic brain injury is an injury where a person hits their head on an object, or an object strikes their head, resulting in serious brain damage. Some common causes of brain injury include domestic violence, auto accidents, sports injuries, and falls.

Although the human brain weighs only three pounds, it plays a key role in important tasks of the body. The brain is divided into three main sections, the cerebellum, the cerebrum, and the brain stem. Each section controls a variety of different body functions, which are briefly explained below:

The cerebrum is the largest part of the human brain and controls a person's behavior, sense of smell, muscular movements, eyesight, ability to allow the right and left brain to communicate, and some motor skills, language, and emotions.

The cerebellum is located under the cerebrum and controls the movement of arms and legs, balance, body position, and posture.

The brain stem is located at the base of the brain, and attaches the spinal cord and cerebrum. The brain stem controls sexual functions, physical growth and regulates body temperature and hormones.

When the brain is injured the functions may be impaired in the area where the brain injury occurred. For example, if a person were to sustain an injury to the frontal lobe of the cerebrum they may have impairments or changes with their judgment, inhibitions, sense of smell, and some movement, just to name a few. The effects of brain injury may be long lasting or permanent and may require surgery, specialists, rehabilitation, therapy, and assistive devices.
