A new study by researchers at the BU School of Medicine suggests that playing youth tackle football may lead to earlier onset of cognitive, behavior, and mood symptoms in later life.
Biomedical engineers at the University of California, Davis, have developed a new technique for measuring blood flow in the human brain, which could be used in patients with stroke or traumatic brain injury.
Researchers have found that specific small molecules in blood plasma may be useful in determining whether someone has sustained a mild traumatic brain injury commonly known as a concussion.
Stanford neurologists have been working for several years with a specialist in computer music to develop a "brain stethoscope" that translates the brain’s electrical activity into sounds.
A USC-led team has archived and shared hundreds of brain scans from stroke patients, which researchers hope will help to forecast which patients will respond to a variety of rehabilitation therapies.
Brain-imaging software developed at Stanford may lead to a major change in how hospitals respond to some stroke patients.
A new study published in the journal Brain suggests that chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is caused by head injuries, not by concussions.
This is the first of a three-part video series that highlights how Indiana University research benefits the lives of people in Indiana and beyond.
University of Washington researchers are developing a smartphone app that can objectively detect concussions and other traumatic brain injuries.
A new study by Boston University researchers suggests a progressive, degenerative brain disease may be more common in football players than previously thought.
