Brain injuries are a tricky injury to recover from. The long-term effects will vary from person to person depending on a variety of factors including the severity of the brain injury. A recent study indicates that the age of the person who suffers the injury could also be a factor.
The study focused on kids between the ages of 11 and 20 and the responses they provided in a health survey. The questionnaire included 12 queries seeking information regarding social dysfunction, anxiety and depressive symptoms. As a part of the study information regarding traumatic brain injuries suffered was also sought. A total of 4,685 young people participated in the study.
