Murdoch and Theodoros (2001) also describe damage due to herniation, cerebral atrophy, and ventricular enlargement. Effects of Brain Injury Powell (1994) lists the effects of brain injury most often noted by relatives of the injured person. These effects include: personality changes, slowness, poor memory, irritability, bad temper, tiredness, depression, rapid mood changes, tension and anxiety, and threats of violence. Murdoch and Theodoros (2001) note that disabilities due to TBI typically include physical impairments, cognitive, communicative, and swallowing disabilities; and that motor speech and language disorders hamper interaction with family and friends, leading to isolation.

Some patients remain in the comatose state, or transition to a Persistent Vegetative State (PVS). PVS patients are unable to move or communicate, and are not aware. Some other patients are cognitively intact and aware of their surroundings, but are unable to move or communicate. This condition is known as locked-in syndrome. The extent of a brain injury can be revealed using imaging technologies. Computerised Axial Tomography (CT or CAT) scanning is an x-ray based technique which reveals gross features, but does not show fine structure well.
