Study Shows Increase in Spirituality Following Brain Injury
Did you know that individuals who suffer a brain injury are likely to have an increased feeling of spirituality due to damage or personal injury of the right parietal lobe, which is the cerebral area within the brain that determines an individual’s place in time and space, both emotionally and physically, according to the latest study from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
The study is very interesting and focused on 26 individuals that had a traumatic brain injury (TBI), but who were functioning within society as the “walking wounded” or suffering silently. The study revealed that those who suffered personal injury from the right parietal lobe damage felt more feelings of being lost or dazed, which was the equivalent of measuring higher on the standard measure of spirituality test. The study also revealed that Contralateral Neglect Syndrome can cause those with such injury to retrieve “information from the contralateral side, but patients may not have a conscious awareness” of this and therefore feel dislocated from the world. These types of studies help us understand what someone with a head injury is going through. Often times , after a car accident, someone who has suffered a brain injury is not the “same person” and it is difficult for friends and family to recognize their behaviour. There are many support groups for not only people suffering from a brain injury but also their families. As an Ottawa brain injury lawyer, I can’t stress enough how important getting support is.
