A newly developed cannabidiol capsule can be absorbed by the body faster and penetrate the brain more quickly in mouse models of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis and TBI.
Blocking substance P following a head injury can prevent tau protein tangles from forming in the brain and lower the risk for CTE and other head injury associated dementias.
The likelihood of death following a traumatic brain injury is twice as high for people of color than white people, a new study reports. Researchers found no bias in health care following TBI, and suggest the increased risk is due to underlying disparities.
78% of female prisoners had a history of severe head injury, most of which occurred in the context of domestic violence. 66% of prisoners experienced repeated head injuries spanning several years.
Damage to highly connected regions of white matter in the brain following injury is more predictive of cognitive impairment than damage to highly connected gray matter hubs.
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.
Heartbeat evoked potential provides evidence of the presence of consciousness in coma patients, a new study reveals.
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.
Following a TBI, the risk of having a stroke is significantly increased for the first four months post-injury. The risk of stroke remains elevated for up to five years following a head injury.
Study reveals there is no significant uptick in men who played high school football reporting problems with brain health in middle age compared to their peers who did not play sports. However, ex-football players were more likely to experience sleep problems and be prescribed medications for chronic pain during mid-life.
