NIH-funded study finds patients treated up to 16 hours after stroke showed positive outcomes

Even mild concussions cause severe and long-lasting impairments in the brain’s ability to clean itself of toxins, and this may seed it for Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other neurodegenerative problems, new research from the

OHSU scientists are first to document mechanism that can cause temporary but severe loss of nervous system function.

NIH-funded study suggests specific cells and genes may be potential treatment targets

Traumatic head injury can have widespread effects in the brain, but now scientists can look in real time at how head injury affects thousands of individual cells and genes simultaneously in mice. This approach could lead to precise treatments for traumatic brain injury (TBI). The study, reported in Nature Communications, was supported by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), part of the National Institutes of Health.

NIH BRAIN Initiative® funded researchers showed that it is possible to use computer chip manufacturing techniques to make a Neural Matrix: a soft, flexible electrical recording device for long lasting, high fidelity monitoring of brain activity.

NIH-funded study identifies risk factors for neuropsychiatric conditions after concussion

Using advanced imaging, researchers have uncovered new information regarding traumatic microbleeds, which appear as small, dark lesions on MRI scans after head injury but are typically too small to be detected on CT scans.

Physicians and others now recognize that seemingly mild, concussion-type head injuries lead to long-term cognitive impairments surprisingly often. A brain protein called SNTF, which rises in the blood after some concussions, signals the type of brain damage that is thought to be the source of these cognitive impairments, according to a study led by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK.
