Why I study...brain injury

Barbara A. Wilson
What is it about the study of brain injury that grabbed my interest in my student days and continues to intrigue me? I know that the division between normality and abnormality, and the frail dividing line that separates them, have always stimulated my curiosity. Working with people with brain injuries, one soon recognises that most of them are not psychiatrically disturbed, nor do they have learning disabilities. They are, for the most part, just like the rest of us. Yet their particular forms of brain injury may lead to specific deficits causing unusual problems in their daily lives.
