Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a recognized risk factor for later development of neurodegenerative disease. However, the mechanisms contributing to neurodegeneration following TBI remain obscure. 
Chronic Inflammation After TBI and Associated Behavioral Sequelae
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to briefly summarize the relevant TBI pathophysiology and current clinical strategies to reduce inflammation, and to discuss the role of ongoing inflammatory processes that may contribute to long-term neuropsychiatric complications associated with TBI.
Lifelong behavioral and neuropathological consequences of repetitive mild traumatic brain injury
TLDR
This study provides the first account of lifelong neurobehavioral and histological consequences of repetitive mTBI providing unique insight into the constellation of evolving and ongoing pathologies with late survival.

Neurogliovascular dysfunction in a model of repeated traumatic brain injury
TLDR
This work provides the first in-situ characterization of the long-term deficits of the neurogliovascular unit following repeated TBI in Thy1-ChR2 mice, and will help guide the development of diagnostic markers as well as therapeutics targeting neurogLIovascular dysfunction.
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy: The Neuropathological Legacy of Traumatic Brain Injury.
TLDR
The neuropathology of the neurodegeneration that occurs after traumatic brain injury, now termed chronic traumatic encephalopathy, is acknowledged as being a complex, mixed, but distinctive pathology, the detail of which is reviewed in this article.
White Matter and Cognition in Traumatic Brain Injury.
TLDR
The topic of white matter and cognition in TBI is considered, beginning with diffuse axonal injury and proceeding to the role of inflammation in the pathogenesis of cognitive dysfunction and dementia that can follow.
Neuropathology of Traumatic Brain Injury and Its Role in the Development of Alzheimer’s Disease
TLDR
Despite recent progress more studies are required to further understanding of the basic mechanisms and pathophysiology of TBI, elucidate the precise association between TBI and neurodegenerative disease, and to identify treatments and therapies that can mitigate long-term consequences.
Fear learning alterations after traumatic brain injury and their role in development of posttraumatic stress symptoms
TLDR
A prospective, longitudinal design was utilized to determine if TBI is associated with altered fear learning and extinction, and if fear processing mediates effects of TBI on PTSD symptom change.

Clinical correlates in an experimental model of repetitive mild brain injury
TLDR
An experimental model of rmTBI is used to address clinical controversies about whether repeated concussions cause long‐term cognitive deficits and whether cognitive deficits depend on increased amyloid β deposition and tau phosphorylation or are worsened by the apolipoprotein E4 allele.
Chronic neuropathologies of single and repetitive TBI: substrates of dementia?
TLDR
Little consensus currently exists on specific features of these post-TBI syndromes that might permit their confident clinical and/or pathological diagnosis, and the mechanisms contributing to neurodegeneration following TBI largely remain unknown.

Acute and chronic traumatic encephalopathies: pathogenesis and biomarkers
TLDR
The goal of this Review is to provide an overview of the latest understanding of CTE pathophysiology, and to delineate the key issues that are challenging clinical and research communities, such as accurate quantification of the risk of Cte, and development of reliable biomarkers for single-incident TBI and CTE.
Inflammation and white matter degeneration persist for years after a single traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
Findings may provide parallels for studying neurodegenerative disease, with traumatic brain injury patients serving as a model for longitudinal investigations, in particular with a view to identifying potential therapeutic interventions.
Head injury and Parkinson's disease risk in twins
TLDR
Twin studies circumvent some of the problems of traditional studies of twin studies, because twins are genetically and environmentally much more similar than typical cases and control subjects.
beta A4 amyloid protein deposition in brain after head trauma.
TLDR
Immunostaining with an antibody to beta A4 amyloid showed extensive deposits of the protein in the cortex in six of the sixteen patients, indicating that severe head injury can triggerbeta A4 deposition in the brain within days.
Repetitive mild traumatic brain injury in a mouse model produces learning and memory deficits accompanied by histological changes.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that this mouse model of mTBI is reproducible, simple, and noninvasive, with behavioral impairment after a single injury and increasing deficits after multiple injuries accompanied by increased focal and diffuse pathology.
