A Comparative Study of Site-Specific Distribution of Aging-Related Tau Astrogliopathy and Its Risk Factors Between Alzheimer Disease and Cognitive Healthy Brains: The Hisayama Study.
TLDR
Differences in the distribution of ARTAG and affected variables across AD and HC individuals were revealed, including primary age-related tauopathy and male gender had significant effects on ARTAG.
A global collaboration to study intimate partner violence-related head trauma: The ENIGMA consortium IPV working group.
TLDR
It is anticipated that the harmonization of measures across sites within the working group could increase the statistical power in characterizing how intimate partner violence-related head trauma impacts long-term physical, cognitive, and psychological health.
ACI-35 AND AADVAC1 ACTIVE IMMUNOTHERAPY AS PREVENTATIVE TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR CHRONIC TRAUMATIC ENCEPHALOPATHY
One of the most common, as well as one of the most dangerous injuries amongst athletes today is mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), commonly known as concussion. Aside from physical symptoms such as
Characterization of cognitive-motor function in women who have experienced intimate partner violence-related brain injury
TLDR
It is suggested IPV-related BI, as well as comorbid PTSD, anxiety, and depression, disrupt the processing required to quickly and accurately hit targets while avoiding distractors.
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy: Update on Current Clinical Diagnosis and Management
TLDR
This clinical update reviews clinical and pathologic diagnostic criteria and recommended symptomatic treatments for chronic traumatic encephalopathy, and highlights the recent advances in diagnosis using diffusor tensor imaging, functional magnetic resonance imaging, and positron emission tomography.
Considering Biological Sex in Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
There is an urgent need to include biological sex and gonadal hormone status in the design and analysis of future studies of TBI, since women who sustained mild TBI are significantly more likely to report more symptoms than males.
The Second NINDS/NIBIB Consensus Meeting to Define Neuropathological Criteria for the Diagnosis of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy.
TLDR
A panel of neuropathologists funded by the NINDS/NIBIB proposed a working protocol including a minimum threshold for CTE diagnosis and an algorithm for the assessment of CTE severity as "Low CTE" or "High Cte" for use in future clinical, pathological, and molecular studies.
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy: Advocacy and Communicating with the Public.
TLDR
The first review of CTE advocacy is provided, the accomplishments of the CLF are summarized, and the connections between CTE Advocacy, research, and legislation over the last decade are considered.

TLDR
It is found that all DP cases with substantial tangle formation showed evidence of extensive beta-protein immunoreactive deposits (plaques), comparable to that seen in AD.

IMMUNOCYTOCHEMISTRY OF NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES IN DEMENTIA PUGILISTICA AND ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE: EVIDENCE FOR COMMON GENESIS
TLDR
The paired helical filament antigens found in Alzheimer type neurofibrillary degeneration are present in the tangles of dementia pugilistica the pathogenesis of tangle formation in these conditions is likely to be the same; thus head injury may be a predisposing factor or environmental trigger for Alzheimer's disease.
Neurological Sequelae of Boxing
TLDR
It appears that EEG has a role in determining when a boxer will return to the ring, and is less of a diagnostic tool for evaluating the encephalopathy, as well as being a significant risk factor for the development of meningiomas.

TLDR
Dementia pugilistica and rare cases of classic Alzheimer's disease following head injury suggest that trauma may also play a provocative role in neurofibrillary change.
Long-term outcome after severe head injury.
TLDR
On the basis of age at injury, the worst state of neurological responsiveness, and the duration of posttraumatic amnesia, the outcome of head injury can be predicted reliably in most cases.

TLDR
A characteristic pattern of cerebral change has been identified which appears not only to be a result of the boxing but also to underlie many features of the punch-drunk syndrome.

Observations on the pathology of insidious dementia following head injury.
A case of progressive dementia following a head injury is described in which the neuropathological findings were those of Alzheimer's Disease. Reports of other rather similar cases, especially in
