GABA alterations in pediatric sport concussion

Conclusions: GABA/Cre appears increased in a region colocalized with working memory task activation after sport concussion. Further work extending these results in larger samples and at time points across the injury episode will aid in refining the clinical significance of these observations.

“How consistently you type on a keyboard and the way you use your smartphone may one day tell your doctor — or someone else, like your employer — if your brain is ailing. Right now, doctors generally rely on questionnaires about a person’s symptoms and written challenges like drawing a clock to begin to home in on brain diseases like depression and dementia. New technologies would replace these with passive monitoring of things like computer or smartphone use, or even changes to a person’s brain waves, to detect brain changes consistent with diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ...

CONCLUSION: The 3-month prevalence of depression after TBI is very high and associated with several injury and demographic features. Future long-term follow-up of this cohort aims to confirm the features that increase risk; this may allow the earlier targeting of susceptible individuals for depression interventions.

Improvement of scanner hardware and software with the implementation of MWI across scanner platforms will likely result in increased research regarding the role of myelin in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Future research should include de...

Publication date: February 2018 Source:Neuroimaging Clinics of North America, Volume 28, Issue 1 Author(s): Eliana Bonfante, Roy Riascos, Octavio ArevaloTeaser Conventional imaging findings in patients with cerebral concussion and chronic traumatic encephalopathy are absent or subtle in the majority of cases. The most common abnormalities include cerebral volume loss, enlargement of the cavum of the septum pellucidum, cerebral microhemorrhages, and white matter signal abnormalities, all of which have poor sensitivity and specificity. Advanced imaging modalities, such as diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), blood oxygen level d...

This study has two main goals: (1) To delineate the neuropathology of PPTH, by interrogating differences in cortical thickness in patients with PPTH relative to healthy controls. (2) To interrogate potential associations between brain morphology and headache burden in patients with PPTH by examining whether cortical thickness relates to frequency of headaches or years lived with PTH. MethodsAdults with PPTH diagnosed according to ICHD 3 beta diagnostic criteria and healthy controls underwent brain MRI on a 3 Tesla scanner. Vertex‐by‐vertex whole brain estimates of cortical thickness were automatically calculated using ...
