Frequent Binge Drinking After Combat-Related TBI Is Not Uncommon
February 25, 2013
Studies show that binge drinking after a TBI, especially for active duty and veterans, could be a significant risk
Biomarkers in Neuroimaging for TBI
July 20, 2012
Biomarkers are anything that can measure acutely and then identify the prognosis or future development of a person's brain injury.
What We Know and Don't Know About Blast-Related TBI
May 21, 2012
We know that blast waves alone can damage the human brain. But more research is needed to learn how exactly blast waves alone damage the brain's cells, blood vessels, and structure as a whole.
More Injury Prevention Efforts Needed for Veterans with TBI
May 5, 2012
Veterans with traumatic brain injury are sustaining new, nonfatal injuries after being discharged from inpatient care.
Hope for Biomarkers to Diagnose Brain Injuries
May 5, 2012
Research on the use of blood biomarkers for diagnosing brain injuries — in theater and in the civilian world — is getting closer. The hope is to be able to use it as a standard diagnostic tool.
How Neuroimaging Helps Tailor Treatments for Brain Injury
May 2, 2012
Neurometabolite is a chemical within cells in the brain that reflects function or dysfunction within those cells.
Myriad Projects for Brain Injury Research and Care
March 8, 2012
COL Hack talks about the Army's thousands of Combat Casualty Care projects, including 450-500 just for brain injury research and care.
Need for Objective Diagnostic Tool for Mild TBI
March 7, 2012
Diagosing a mild TBI often has to rely on subjective evaluations. A standard, objective screening tool like a blood biomarker would help with diagnosis and with tracking recovery.
Breacher Training Study
February 2, 2012
Special Forces are being studied during breacher training in which they experience real explosive events in hopes of answering more questions about the effects of blasts on the brain.
The Research on Blood Biomarkers for Brain Injury
December 14, 2011
Blood biomarkers could enormously change the way TBI — from severe to mild — is diagnosed and then treated.
