Controlled cortical impact: The animal model that may change brain injury

Controlled cortical impact: The animal model that may change brain injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the leading causes of disability and death around the world. To compound this problem, many patients go on to develop anxiety and with little known about the pathophysiology behind this complication, long-lasting and effective treatments are lacking. Using an animal model known as the controlled cortical impact (CCI) model, Dr Ann Marini and […]

Light therapy improves cognitive function after traumatic brain injury

Light therapy improves cognitive function after traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injuries affect millions of people every year and the long-term symptoms are often unresponsive to current treatments. Dr Greg Hipskind and his team have developed a novel method of light therapy which seeks to improve cognitive function and cerebral blood flow. Results are extremely positive for a study cohort of 12 military Veterans living with the consequences of […]

A potential new treatment for brain injury

Injuries to the brain can have dire consequences, leading to debilitating symptoms and an increased risk of long-term degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Despite the impact these injuries have on the lives of millions, there are no good treatments or preventative therapies. Associate Professor Daniel Linseman, of the Department of Biological Sciences and the […]

New innovations in traumatic brain injury research

traumatic brain injury Dr Lynn Ann Barker Traumatic Brain Injury

Lynne Ann Barker is a pioneer in the field of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Her work aims to understand how trauma to the brain leads to changes in behaviour and cognitive ability in those affected. She has also worked to develop new experimental methods for assessing cognitive ability, including computerised simulations that incorporate real-world tasks such as cooking, with the aim of increasing the speed […]
