    Introduction. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) represents a diverse group of brain injuries that vary in cause, severity, and clinical outcomes affecting individuals from all socio-demographic strata including athletes and military personnel (Corps et al., ).Among TBIs, mild TBI (mTBI) is the most frequent type in the United States, representing 70–90% of traumatic brain injury complications. Coping with Concussion and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: A Guide to Living with the Challenges Associated with Post Concussion Syndrome a nd Brain Trauma (Paperback) by Diane Roberts Stoler.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that as many as million people in the United States experience a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year, over 15% of which are thought to be sports-related. Despite the relatively high prevalence of these injuries, however, it seems we are just beginning to appreciate the true extent of the effects they can have on the brain.   Traumatic brain injury is a major source of death and severe disability worldwide. This book provides an excellent and detailed overview of the management of patients with traumatic brain injury, in a stepwise approach, from the intensive care unit, through to discharge from the hospital, rehabilitation, recovery and assimilation in family and society. This book also discusses mechanisms .

      Keeping pace with advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and science of TBI, the Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury, Third Edition, comprehensively fills this gap in knowledge. Nearly all 50 chapters feature new authors, all of them experts in their field. ♥ Book Title: Overcoming Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Post-Concussion Symptoms ♣ Name Author: Nigel S.

In this concise, comprehensive manual, Cognitive Rehabilitation Specialist Mary Lou Acimovic draws from over 30 years of clinical experience to validate and demystify the symptoms of MTBI /5(21). INTRODUCTION. Despite increasing evidence from preclinical and human studies that mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) causes axonal shearing injury of white matter (WM) microstructure that can affect the long-term cognitive, neuropsychiatric, and social domains of function, the lack of reliable objective tools to measure this pathology is a barrier to clinical translation (1–4).

As the title suggests, this is a comprehensive survey of clinical and research topics related to mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) in the pediatric population. This comprehensive volume summarizes both recent advances in this field as well as domains for future research.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be defined as the disruption in brain function, or other evidence of brain pathology, caused by an external physical force [].The yearly incidence of TBI is estimated at 50 million cases worldwide; thus, approximately half of the global population will have an episode of TBI in their life [].In the UK, it is the most common cause of death.

Thus, "mild" injury may be anything but mild. Traumatic brain injuries occur when a blow to the head interrupts normal brain functioning. Those disruptions can include loss of consciousness, memory problems for the injury, muscle weakness and.

Thus, while penetrating brain injury and SCI share common pathology, there are distinct differences between mild TBI or concussion and SCI [2,3]. In addition, direct damage to axonal tracts projecting through the spinal cord is common in SCI, while acceleration-induced axonal injury in TBI is diffuse and rarely involves axonal transection.
