Traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects all age groups in a population and is an injury generating scientific interest not only as an acute event, but also as a complex brain disease with several underlying neurobehavioral and neuropathological characteristics. We review early and long-term alterations after juvenile and adult TBI with a focus on changes in the neurovascular unit, including neuronal interactions with glia and blood vessels at the blood–brain barrier (BBB). Post-traumatic changes… CONTINUE READING
