Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

For these next questions, please think about injuries you have had during your entire lifetime, especially those that affected your head or neck.
It might help to remember times you went to the hospital or emergency room.
Think about injuries you may have received from a car or motorcycle wreck, bicycle crash, being hit by something, falling down, being hit by someone, playing sports or an injury during military service.
Thinking about any injuries you have had in your lifetime, were you ever knocked out or did you lose consciousness?
