22:12 EDT 19th October 2018 | BioPortfolio

The Brain Injury Research Institute is a center for the study of traumatic brain injuries and prevention, which is affiliated with the Blanchette Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute at West Virginia University. The purpose of the Institute is to study the short and long-term impact of brain injuries in order to better understand the impact of concussions, the development of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and its psychosocial effects on peoples' lives. Research indicates a clear link between brain injuries and various debilitating neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
