PSY/634 PSY 634 PSY634 Short Paper- Behavioral Deficits.docx- Snhu

Jenny is a 17-year-old who was struck to the right side of her forehead with a softball during a game. The blow was hard enough that it rendered her unconscious for nearly an hour, and she was taken to the emergency department. A brain MRI revealed encephalomalacia (softening of tissue due to damage) in the right area of the frontal lobe. In the weeks following the injury, what types of deficits might you expect, given the location of the injury? What do you think would be the medical recommendations for the recovery process? The right hemisphere of the frontal lobe controls the left side of the body and the left hemisphere controls the right side of the body. Damage to the frontal lobe can create changes in personality, problems with working memory, limited facial expressions, and difficulty interpreting the environment, such as not being capable of assessing risk and danger [ CITATION Baa10 \l 1033 ].

Working memory describes one’s ability to hold attention by accessing primary and secondary memory to retrieve information [ CITATION Baa10 \l 1033 ]. Patients who have sustained an injury to the frontal lobes may exhibit the inability to retrieve information from secondary memory as quickly as someone who hasn’t sustained an injury. Frontal lobe injuries have also been known to lead to deficits in executive functioning such as the ability to anticipate, set goals, plan, detect errors, or correct oneself [ CITATION Baa10 \l 1033 ]. Based on the injuries Jenny sustained, one would expect her to be deficient in her ability to make good choices and recognize consequences, suffer from memory impairment, have a change in mood or personality, express difficulty with working memory, and show symptoms of increase in impulsivity. She could also have decreased or impaired motor function. Treatment for frontal lobe damage will vary based on the symptoms Jenny exhibits.
