Using a mouse trauma model, researchers observe specific cells mount an immune response to concussion brain injuries in an attempt to prevent more widespread damage.
Researchers identify safe, pleasant smelling compounds which keep mosquitoes at bay and help control the spread of diseases.
A new neuroimaging technique allows neurosurgeons to see neural connections prior to surgery, thus preserving and protecting the brain’s critical functions when operating.
Women who suffered concussions during their premenstrual phase had a slower recovery and poorer health one month after injury compared to those injured two weeks directly after their period or women taken birth control pills, a new study reports.
