The human brain weighs about 1.4kg and accounts for approximately 2% of our overall body weight (Farrell & Dempsey 2013).

Our brain is who we are. It is the one thing that makes us unique.

When damage occurs to the brain, changes consequently occur to the person. These changes vary considerably and may include alterations to the person’s speech, mobility, memory and even personality (Synapse 2016).

Brain injuries can be acquired in a variety of ways, including:

  • Stroke;
  • Tumour;
  • Traumatic injury;
  • Alcohol or drug abuse;
  • Poisoning;
  • Infection;
  • Disease;
  • Near-drowning;
  • Haemorrhage; and
  • Disorders (e.g. Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis).
