Acquired brain injury (ABI) leads to significant changes in cognition, emotion, behavior, and experience of self. Disorders such as aphasia, amnesia, and unilateral neglect are explored as regards brain-behavior relationships. Research findings are used to further understand both ABI sequelae and self-constructs such as self-concept, self-esteem, and self-efficacy. Case studies are used to highlight the complex and integrative aspects of neuroanatomy, functional brain networks, key characteristics of disorders, and impact on the brain-injured individual.
