Researchers discover disruptions in neural networks following TBI

Georgia residents who have been unfortunate enough to incur a traumatic brain injury are probably aware of the massively disruptive effects of such wounds. A TBI can make it difficult to meet the challenges of everyday life and severely impact the ability to function economically. Researchers into TBIs have built an impressive body of work on the subject, and they have detected extremely specific patterns of trauma with the injury. There is hope that understanding the ways that TBIs harm the patient will lead to ever more effective treatments.
