Right Brain Injuries

We hear how people can be more “right-brain” or “left-brain” types.

So what does that mean? Well, sides of the brain control different aspects of our humanity. And injuries to either side can affect those specifically.

Per the Brain Injury Association of America, injuries of the right side of the brain can cause:

Visual-spatial impairment
Visual memory deficits
Left neglect (inattention to the left side of the body)
Decreased awareness of deficits
Altered creativity and music perception
Loss of “the big picture” type of thinking
Decreased control over left-sided body movements
