Frontal Lobe Injury
The frontal lobes of the brain are located towards the front of the cranium and are fairly vulnerable to injury. Studies have shown that the frontal lobe is the most common region of the brain to suffer injury following trauma. Given that this area of the brain is involved in motor function, social behavior, memory, language and other important functions, trauma to this region can result in serious short-term and long-term consequences.

The impact of a frontal lobe injury can be severe. The consequences may include:
- Loss of movement and strength in the arms, hands and fingers
- Difficulty in speech and facial expression
- Decrease in problem solving and critical thinking skills
- Difficulty interpreting feedback from an environment and learning new skills
- Dramatic changes in social and sexual behavior
- Loss of spatial orientation
When trauma is mild or moderate, many of these symptoms are temporary and will improve over time. Severe trauma, however, can cause permanent conditions in the brain and require long-term medical care and rehabilitation.Learn More About Frontal Lobe Injuries and Brain Trauma
