New research shows that even first head injury changes the brain

The study used advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques and found changes in the brain – microbleeding and what is thought to be inflammation – that would not normally be detected by the medical professionals who treat athletes for head injuries

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

As medical researchers study more and more about traumatic brain injury, they are coming up with findings that are startling.  This latest study shows that even the first time one takes a major blow to the head can cause microbleeding, which alters the brain structure and can lead to long term consequences like memory loss.
