The case of Phineas Gage was a very odd case. He got a traumatic brain injury (TBI) which happened from a railway line incident where he worked at. An explosion occurred and the tamping iron hit Gage in the face and went through the left cheek and passed through the front part of his head into his skull. Surprisingly he lived which was very much a blessing. Although, twelve years after his incident he kept having multiple convulsions and ended up passing away from a seizure on May 21, 1860 (Garcia-Molina, 2012).
