• The brains of men and women are wired differently, and when it comes to traumatic brain injuries (TBI), women are more likely to develop subsequent neuropsychiatric disorders, like anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Until now, it’s been unclear why that is, but a new study by researchers at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) provides that missing link – a potentially disrupted pathway in the brain.

  • Children who sustained traumatic brain injuries may experience psychological effects like anxiety, phobias and depression more than a decade later, researcher at Monash University School of Psychological Sciences in Melbourne, Australia. “The study suggests that brain injury is in some way related to longer-term anxiety symptoms, while previously it was thought that brain injury only leads to short-term effects,” said lead author Michelle Albicini.

  • Cohen Veterans Bioscience and the American College of Radiology (ACR) announced the creation of the first Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Imaging Reference Library. The library will be essential to the development of effective clinical imaging tools for diagnosing and managing patients with mild TBI.

  • Recent admissions about brain trauma for Tom Brady and others remind Dr. Chris Nowinski that this is a habit NFL players must break, right now.
