POSTCONCUSSION SYNDROME

continual, pervasive modifications in mental skills and emotional operating which take place as an outcome of diffuse trauma to the brain during concussion. Someone with this syndrome might seem to be within typical limits neurologically but suffers from continual depression, tiredness, impulse-control dilemmas, and trobules with focusing and memory. Postconcussion syndrome is often observed in people who have been continually beaten on the face and head.
