Working with fruit flies, researchers discover a genetic underpinning for susceptibility to brain injuries and links to human TBI.
Transplanted stem cells help build a 'biobridge' which links uninjured brain regions to those damaged as a result of TBI, a new study shows.
Congressman Fattah introduces a new resolution in the U.S House of Representatives which supports the goals of World Alzheimer's Month.
Soldiers who suffered TBI as a result of an IED blast are more likely to have pituitary hormone problems than patients with TBI caused by accidents, a new study suggests.
For those with moderate-to-severe TBI, atrophy may be countered by participating in environmental enrichment, a new study suggests.
Looking at fMRI scans taken within 24 hours and again weeks after concussion, researchers suggest the brain may compensate for TBI during a patient's recovery time.
According to a new study, 1 in 5 adolescents have suffered a TBI which left them unconscious for more than five minutes or required hospitalization.
Researchers note a considerable rise in the number of fall-induced traumatic brain injuries in elderly patients since the 1970's. Future studies are required to better understand the reasons for the increased numbers and provide effective interventions to prevent injury.
A new study supports p38α MAPK as a possible clinical target for treating central nervous system disorders associated with uncontrolled brain inflammation, including TBI.
Researchers evaluate the pathological impact of single incident TBI and mild, repetitive traumatic brain injury, in order to learn which measures need to be taken to identify risk, early incidence and to reduce long term complications associated with TBI.
