    Special blood vessels in whale brains may protect them from pulses, caused by swimming, in their blood that would damage the brain, new research has suggested.

  • New clues into how the circadian clock helps the brain recover after injury
    on September 19, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    A type of brain cell that can renew itself is regulated by circadian rhythms, providing significant insights into how the body's internal clock may promote healing after traumatic brain injuries (TBI), according to new research.

  • Mild traumatic brain injury increases risk of behavioral and emotional problems in kids

    Researchers have found that kids who experience a traumatic brain injury (TBI), even a mild one, have more emotional and behavioral problems than kids who do not.

  • Brain bubbles: Researchers describe the dynamics of cavitation in soft porous material
    on August 30, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    A tiny bubble popping within a liquid seems more fanciful than traumatic. But millions of popping vapor bubbles can cause significant damage to rigid structures like boat propellers or bridge supports. Can you imagine the damage such bubbles could do to soft human tissues like the brain? During head impacts and concussions, vapor bubbles form and violently collapse, creating damage to human tissue. Fluid mechanics researchers are now one step closer to understanding these phenomena.

  • Surprising culprit worsens stroke, TBI damage
    on August 23, 2022 at 1:54 pm

    A new study provides for the first time the surprising evidence that four common nonexcitatory amino acids that usually make proteins which are essential to brain function, instead cause irreversible, destructive swelling of both the astrocytes that support neurons and the neurons themselves in the aftermath of stroke, TBI.
