Traumatic Brain Injury and Melatonin

It’s been well documented in medical journals that those who suffer brain injury often complain of sleep disturbances. True, loss of sleep after a traumatic brain injury may be due to the associated pain or anxiety following such incidents. However, medical studies clearly indicate that sleep loss after a traumatic brain injury is often due to the brain’s inability to properly produce melatonin after severe trauma.

There are two main types of Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI:

When a foreign object (such as a bullet) pierces the brain it can cause damage to specific areas of the brain. This type of TBI is known as a Penetrating Injury. Penetrating injuries result in localized damage along the path that the foreign object traveled through the brain. Damage to different areas of the brain will result in different symptomatology.
