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.
According to three new studies, numerous opportunities exist to improve the outcomes of TBI in older adults.
New research into concussions sustained during sports shows damage to the brain can persist for decades after an original or head trauma. The long-term consequences of concussions include memory loss, attention deficits and motor control problems.
A new study found soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with mild TBI have measurable abnormalities in white matter when compared to returning veterans who have not experienced TBI. These abnormalities appear to be related to the severity of the injury and are related to cognitive deficits.
