Study Links PTSD to Hidden Head Injuries Suffered in Combat. Even when brain injury is so subtle that it can...
Researchers find evidence of cognitive issues and miRNA biomarkers, indicating brain injuries from concussions or head-to-head contact, in college football players. The findings indicated lasting damage caused by sports related concussions occur earlier than expected.
Researchers made advancements in developing new tests to monitor cognitive and motor function following a sports related concussion.
Researchers report the amygdala may play a bigger role in facial recognition than previously thought. According to a new study, the amygdala responds more specifically to images of the face than the fusiform face area does.
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.
A new blood test for SNTF protein following concussion may be used to predict long term cognitive impairment.
Researchers have discovered a previously unknown mechanism that allows neural networks to protect against the spread of secondary brain damage as seen in TBI and ischemic stroke.
