Phineas P. Gage (1823 – May 21, 1860) was an American railroad construction foreman remembered for his improbable[C] survival of a rock-blasting accident in which a large iron rod was driven completely through his head, destroying much of his brain's left frontal lobe, and for that injury's reported effects on his personality and behavior over the remaining twelve years of his life—effects so profound that (for a time at least) friends saw him as "no longer Gage." Long known as "the American Crowbar Case"—once termed "the case which more than all others is calculated to excite our wonder, impair the value of prognosis, and even to subvert our physiological doctrines"—Phineas Gage influenced nineteenth-century discussion about the mind and brain, particularly debate on cerebral localization,:ch7–9 and was perhaps the first case to suggest that damage to specific parts of the brain might induce specific personality changes.:1:C So says Wikipedia about the Famous Phineas Gage case. Now, I have a character who has an injury similar to Mr. Gage's, but there has been little literature about what exact emotional and personality changes happened. I know the frontal lobe controls impulse control, but what other changes would occur with someone with a frontal-lobe injury?
