A new study reveals multiple parts of the brain are associated with memory processing. Findings could help develop new strategies to treat those with brain injuries.
An experimental drug that reduces brain damage and improves motor skills among stroke-afflicted rodents when given with federally approved clot-busting therapy has been created.
Survivors of TBI are three times more likely to die prematurely, either as a result of suicide or from fatal injuries, than the general population, a new study reports.
Traumatic brain injury caused five times as many neurons in the amygdala to be active during white noise exposure in rats. Altered sensory processing within subcortical sensory-emotional networks following TBI impacts the facilitation of traumatic memory and may contribute to the development of PTSD.
Short-term exposure to an experimental drug reverses age-related memory decline and cognitive deficits in mice. The drug, ISRIB, has previously shown beneficial effects in treating memory loss associated with TBI and other neurological disorders.
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.
Neuroimaging brain scans show evidence of brain abnormalities four months after a mild concussion occurs, researchers report.
According to researchers, soccer players who hit their heads two or more times in a two week period, by heading a ball or a minor collision with another player, were more likely to express symptoms of concussion.
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.
A new study of football players who were diagnosed with CTE reveals those who started playing tackle football before the age of 12 had earlier onset of emotional and cognitive problems.
