Child head injuries can have a significant effect on a child's mood and behavior, according to a study completed in Canada. It was published in the Journal of Neuropsychology. According to the results, children who had a minor traumatic head injury still had a risk of suffering psychological effects.
The study analyzed 47 children who were all under the age of five and who had suffered a mild head injury. That group was then compared to children who suffered a fractured bone or had no injury at all.
