Combining brain scan images with machine learning, researchers identified a number of brain changes following TBI that share similarities with Alzheimer's disease. The findings add to the growing body of evidence that the two conditions follow the same trajectories.
Researchers report concussions and TBI could increase the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease at an early age.
A neuroimaging study finds profound brain activity abnormalities in a group of retired NFL players.
Military and law enforcement personnel who are routinely exposed to low levels of blasts, such as from high-caliber firearms while training, have higher levels of biomarkers associated with TBI.
Researchers have created a polymer based material that changes color depending on how hard it's hit. The technology could be used to indicate the level of TBI in football players and soldiers.
Varsity football players who experienced concussions performed well on cognitive tests but showed strong impairments in tests related to inhibitory control. Many reported problems with the ability to suppress thoughts, actions, and feelings following concussions. The findings shed light on the long-term implications of sports-related concussions.
