Illustration of damage to the brain as a result of a head injury. A severed axon is shown in the centre of the illustration, which prevents impulses travelling from one neuron to another. Blood vessels can also be torn during head injuries, and the resulting bleeding causes a compression of the axons with the risk of a coma.
