Researchers report a new blood test can help detect neurological damage associated with Alzheimer's disease before any of the cognitive symptoms appear. Additionally, researchers report the test may be applied to help identify brain damage associated with TBI, stroke and multiple sclerosis.
A new study reports amyloid plaques are present shortly after brain injury in middle aged people. The findings may help explain why people who suffer TBIs are at an increased risk for developing Alzheimer's.
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.
Researchers have identified a link between traumatic brain injury and intestinal changes. A new study reports the intestinal changes may contribute to increased risk of developing infections and could worsen brain damage in TBI patients.
Researchers report a toxic form of tau protein increases following TBI, leading to the development of the same type of mental impairments seen in Alzheimer's patients.
According to a new study, veterans exposed to explosions but do not report symptoms to TBI may still have damage to the white matter in their brain.
A new study reports TBI can disrupt the function of the glymphatic system, causing a build up of toxic proteins in the brain and accelerating neurodegeneration.
In children, traumatic brain injury can lead to reduced brain size and cognitive impairments that affect learning, researchers report.
