An Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is defined as “an injury to the brain that has occurred after birth and is not hereditary, congenital or degenerative. The injury commonly results in a change in neuronal activity, which affects the physical integrity, the metabolic activity, or the functional ability of the cell. The term does not refer to brain injuries induced by birth trauma.”
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a type of Acquired Brain Injury. TBI is defined as “an insult to the brain, not of a degenerative or congenital nature but caused by an external force, that may produce a diminished or altered state of consciousness, which results in an impairment of cognitive abilities and/or physical functioning. It can also result in the disturbance of behavioral or emotional functioning. These may be either temporary or permanent and cause partial or total functional disability or psychosocial maladjustment” (Brain Injury Association of America, The Essential Brain Injury Guide, Edition 4.0).
