Each year about 1.5 million people in the U.S. survive a traumatic brain injury due to a fall, car accident, or a sports injury, which can cause immediate and long-term disability, and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Disease.

University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) researchers wanted to better understand what happens in the brain during injury, so they conducted a study in mice to determine how different types of brain cells in mice react to severe trauma. The recently published results could lead to new treatments.

The University of Maryland School of Medicine serves as the anchor for a large academic health center which aims to provide the best medical education, conduct the most innovative biomedical research and provide the best patient care and community service to Maryland and beyond.

Living with brain damage is a real suffering course because there is no escape, not even a moment's respite. It follows you everywhere like a shadow, even in your dreams where it takes the form of bizarre personifications and strange, broken landscapes.

They'd love me. I've had 10 concussions, 3 skull fractures and knocked unconscious 5 times. 3 years ago I had a stroke to further compound the situation. Memory issues, depression, mood swings, anger issues, balance problems, concentration and learning problems.
