Closed-head, frontal impacts in which the brain undergoes both lateral and rotational acceleration comprise the majority of human traumatic brain injury (TBI). Here, we utilize a clinically relevant model to examine the effects of a single concussion on aspects of brain integrity: the blood–brain barrier, the perineuronal nets (PNNs), and diffuse axonal injury. Adult, male Sprague–Dawley rats received either a frontal, closed-head concussive TBI, or no injury and were evaluated at 1- or 7-day post-injury. Using immunolabeling for albumin, we observed a significant increase in the permeability of the blood&ndash...
