I agree it does affect behaviors. I have seen it.

Delmar Sutton says:

My wife suffered a TBI. I notice changes such as attention to detail that she would not normally comment on. She noticed that the fountain in the center of the pond next to our house being turned off, or the clothes someone is wearing or the fact that someone seems to be sad about something. It appears that she doesn't have the same "filter" on expressing her thoughts that she had before.

The neurochemical changes are secondary, primary are the structural neurophysiological changes to neurons and axons. It's literally structural damage to an organ of the body.
