Head trauma can generate various psychopathological sequelae either in intellectual functions or personality.

The post-traumatic sequelae that are focused on in this work are memory disturbances, dementia and personality problems. It partially sums up fifteen years of psychological studies on head injuries conducted in the department of neurosurgery of Prof. Jean Brihaye.
