A traumatic brain injury can cause suicide – the scientists

This is the conclusion of researchers. A concussion sometimes leads to severe cognitive disorders. It is proved that brain injuries increase the likelihood of schizophrenia and many other mental illnesses. Now scientists say about the relationship of injuries of the brain with a tendency to suicide.

The researchers analyzed data on the health status of 23,500 people. Each suffered a concussion at least once in life. In the study group committed suicide 700 people. In the control group there were almost three times less, says Science World Report.

While experts can't answer the question of how the brain injury affects the propensity to suicide. Perhaps this will be the subject for further research.
