Brain Injury

A gadget made of plastic and copper wire is a technological breakthrough with the potential to revolutionize brain scans
Adolescent athletes who sustained concussions while playing a sport recovered more quickly when they underwent a supervised, aerobic exercise regimen, a study published today in JAMA Pediatrics has found.
After ten years of studying the brains, researchers believe they have an explanation for why similar levels of head trauma in different people can cause some of them to suffer more drastic symptoms of CTE than others.
A Rutgers-led team of scientists has identified two molecules that protect nerve cells after a traumatic brain injury and could lead to new drug treatments.
Even without symptoms of concussion, researchers studying high school football players found two elevated biomarkers that are associated with brain injury.
More than half of patients hospitalized for a concussion receive no follow-up care within three months of their discharge, according to a national multi-center study.
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.
