Those who survive physical abusive relationships might suffer a brain disease similar to those of football players.
Researchers say their drug delivery technique could offer a noninvasive approach to treatment for traumatic brain injury.
There's been national debate around football-related head impacts and how they can cause problems later in life. Now, in order to reduce these problems, researchers have helped develop a set of helmetless-tackling drills.
These days, technology is helping to bring a whole new view into the world of medical science. Researchers at the Cohen Veterans Center worked to assess eye movement in veterans of the long Middle East conflicts, many of whom had suffered from traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
Scientists have found that improvised explosive devices can cause a distinctive honeycomb pattern of broken and swollen nerve fibers throughout critical brain regions, including those that control executive function.
A blow to the head may actually disrupt the function of the brain's waste removal system.
Sports-related brain injuries are a huge issue in football and other high-contact sports. Now, a new study has provided some insight into the behavioral damage caused by repeated blows to the head.
Scientists have discovered that repeated blows to the head during a season of contact sports may cause changes in the brain's white matter and affect cognitive abilities even if none of the impacts resulted in a concussion.
