Encephalopathy Fact #2: Caused By Trauma

Our brain is made up of a very soft, delicate material. Fortunately, it is well protected largely by a thick bone casing which we know as a skull. The skull is not invincible, though, meaning that the brain inside can become exposed. Even if the skull does remain intact, the brain is still not completely safe from trauma.

A sharp blow to the head could very well cause damage to the brain inside. Even if the skull is not penetrated or broken in any way, the brain could still be damaged if forces cause it to collide with the inside of the skull.
