Altered Neurochemistry in Former Professional Soccer Players without a History of Concussion.
Soccer is played by more than 250 million people worldwide. Repeatedly heading the ball may place soccer players at high risk for repetitive subconcussive head impacts (RSHI). This study evaluatesExpand

Neuroimaging in repetitive brain trauma
Sports-related concussions are one of the major causes of mild traumatic brain injury. Although most patients recover completely within days to weeks, those who experience repetitive brain traumaExpand

RNA interference targeting CD147 inhibits the proliferation, invasiveness, and metastatic activity of thyroid carcinoma cells by down-regulating glycolysis.
A high rate of glycolytic flux, even in the presence of oxygen, is a key metabolic hallmark of cancer cells. Lactate, the end product of glycolysis, decreases the extracellular pH and contributes toExpand

Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy as a Biomarker for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy
Abstract Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a neurodegenerative disease associated with exposure to repetitive head impacts (RHI). Currently, CTE can only be diagnosed after death byExpand

Correcting for Frequency Drift in Clinical Brain MR Spectroscopy
Averaging multiple repetitions to improve signal‐to‐noise ratio is common practice in magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). However, temporal variations in scanner B0 due to motion or gradientExpand

Spectral improvement by fourier thresholding of in vivo dynamic spectroscopy data
MR spectroscopy (MRS) typically requires averaging of multiple acquisitions to achieve adequate signal‐to‐noise ratio (SNR). In systems undergoing dynamic changes this can compromise the temporalExpand

Noninvasive estimation of cognitive status in mild traumatic brain injury using speech production and facial expression
In civilian and military populations, there is strong need for objective, noninvasive technologies in monitoring cognitive status associated with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Previous work hasExpand
