Introduction: A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can cause temporary dysfunction of brain cells. More severe cranio-cerebral injuries can lead to bruising, perforation and tissue rupture, bleeding, and other physical damage to the brain that can lead to long-term complications or death . Consequences of TBI can include physical, sensory, behavioral, and communication disorders, as well as disturbances in cognitive functioning. Aim: To investigate cognitive consequences after Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Materials and Methods: An international literature review was performed cognitive consequences after Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Conclusion: Cognitive deficits (impairments in thinking skills) may include changes in perception of his environment, distraction, lack of rational thinking, inability to solve problems, and executive functionality (e.g. goal setting, planning, movement, self-knowledge, self-control, and evaluation). Although re-learning ability is affected by memory deficits, long-term memory impairment for events and things that happened before the injury, however, the general state of memory may remain unaffected.
