In simple terms, the neurons in brain tissue have been damaged

or compromised. This means that some or many functions of the brain

require more effort -- sometimes with little success -- to do

tasks. This can involve a lifetime of re-learning; variables for

success are so numerous as to require extensive diagnosis and

eventual treatment. A book helpful to laypersons is "Through This

Window: Views on Traumatic Brain Injury", author P. I. Felton of

Belfast, Maine.
