The article presents an overview of traumatic brain injury, which is a leading cause of death and disability and leads to 1.5 million deaths annually. A comparison of the prediction tree model and the general model of functional and cognitive recovery in patients with traumatic brain injury is presented. The differences between cognitive and functional recovery are discussed.
