Brain Damage

If someone had brain damage to the part of the brain that controls emotion, is there a way for them to control their anger if that part is damaged? Or is there something a doctor could do, surgery or treatment wise, that could help as well?

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Usually injury to frontal lobe of the brain causes emotional problems and changes in behavior and memory. No surgery helps. Usually psychotherapy, ways of memorizing, behavior therapy etc are the tools used to help the patient deal with day to day life.
A neuro-psychological assessment is done, and the tools that would help you best tried. Patients do learn to control their emotions. All the best! Take care!
