Traumatic Brain Injury | Dementia Society of America

"A person who has experienced a single traumatic head injury [Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)] could develop a condition called posttraumatic Dementia, which may cause symptoms such as long-term memory problems.

 

Depending on the part of the brain that's injured, this condition can cause Dementia signs and symptoms such as uncoordinated movement and impaired speech, as well as slow movement, tremors and rigidity (Parkinsonism). Symptoms may not appear until many years after the actual trauma."
