In a closed head injury, there is tearing, stretching, or shearing of the individual’s brain tissue. This type of brain injury is more frequently suffered from, than open head injuries.

...in an ideal learning environment, and scientists along with educators have gained so much knowledge about how children learn that school projects have cognitive design behind them.

When an episode or opinion has popped into my brain, I did not consciously choose to write about that topic or person. It was an eureka moment, that surprised me. I wonder,

"Where did that thought or memory come from? I haven't thought about him for years!"

Our brains are highly sophisticated machines capable of producing amazing things. Sometimes it can feel almost like a computer that has a virus though because our emotions can hold us back. We often doubt ourselves unnecessarily and live in a state of paranoia that can seem like a nightmare that never ends. Many forget that we do indeed control our lives, and even in a state of panic there is a right way and wrong way to think. Anxiety is ingrained into us to help us, but only if we let it.
