    The neurological processes involved when behavioral changes result from a brain injury or illness are important as well as in regards to the nervous system too. Focal bleeding occurs, especially if they head has been shaken, or if their is a fracture in the skull. Extracerebral hemorrhages occur when their is some form of tearing in the bridging veins. This can sometimes occur when it comes to cortical arteries as well. This is with the structural aspect of the brain. However, more is worth noting. The Catecholamine and the cerebospinal fluid is usually much higher as well as the seratonin. A breakdown occurs within the membrane, and a breakdown occurs. This usually causes much inflammation. An increase of calcium occurs and cell death occurs. Another area that is important is with hypotension and hypoxia as well. The nervous system that brings about these changes. When the brain is not working right, then a person has to re-learn how to walk, speak, and write all over again. An individual will have to go through much rehabilitation, that could last months or years. Nothing works right for the longest time, but there is hope for anyone who decides to recover and get well from it. Once the brain is affected, then the CNS is affected as well. A person has the lack of abilities to function, and has to have occupational and physical therapy.
