The Edwin Smith Papyrus

Head injury is present in ancient myths that may date back before recorded history.[114] Skulls found in battleground graves with holes drilled over fracture lines suggest that trepanation may have been used to treat TBI in ancient times.[115] Ancient Mesopotamians knew of head injury and some of its effects, including seizures, paralysis, and loss of sight, hearing or speech.[116] The Edwin Smith Papyrus, written around 1650–1550 BC, describes various head injuries and symptoms and classifies them based on their presentation and tractability.[117] Ancient Greek physicians including Hippocrates understood the brain to be the center of thought, probably due to their experience with head trauma.[118]

Medieval and Renaissance surgeons continued the practice of trepanation for head injury.[118] In the Middle Ages, physicians further described head injury symptoms and the term concussion became more widespread.[119] Concussion symptoms were first described systematically in the 16th century by Berengario da Carpi.[118] It was first suggested in the 18th century that intracranial pressure rather than skull damage was the cause of pathology after TBI. This hypothesis was confirmed around the end of the 19th century, and opening the skull to relieve pressure was then proposed as a treatment.[115] In the 19th century it was noted that TBI is related to the development of psychosis.[120] At that time a debate arose around whether post-concussion syndrome was due to a disturbance of the brain tissue or psychological factors

--It is a process which totally takes place in the mind which has repercussions throughout the body and resulting actions.
--because they are irrational fears that do not have a basis in reality .psychology n science deals directly with those areas thats how they connect reality is the scientifical part and the brain function itself we the psychologist r trained to recknize these n deal with the matter and solution on common ground
Because usually, our fears are directly related to our way of thinking, our psychological outlook on different matters.


What are the effects of suicide?

The effects of suicidal behavior or completed suicide on friends and family members are often devastating. Individuals who lose a loved one from suicide (suicide survivors) are more at risk for becoming preoccupied with the reason for the suicide while wanting to deny or hide the cause of death, wondering if they could have prevented it, feeling blamed for the problems that preceded the suicide, feeling rejected by their loved one, and stigmatized by others. Survivors may experience a great range of conflicting emotions about the deceased, feeling everything from intense sadness about the loss, helpless to prevent it, longing for the person they lost, anger at the deceased for taking their own life to relief if the suicide took place after years of physical or mental illness in their loved one. This is quite understandable given that the person they are grieving is at the same time the victim and the perpetrator of the fatal act.
