Repeated Knocks to the Head Leads to Newly Recognized Brain Disease
Reports on the danger of head trauma in athletes and soldiers has pervaded the news in recent years. NFL and NHL player deaths have catapulted this problem into the limelight, with stories appearing in the New York Times, NPR, ESPN, 60 Minutes and even television entertainment shows. Media attention has raced far ahead of the science on this degenerative condition. But scientists are catching on. They have given this disease its own definition—chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Different from traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or ALS, they say CTE can strike adult and youths alike. Special coverage by Alzforum, the leading news source on Alzheimer’s and related diseases research, summarizes the status of research in this burgeoning field as researchers take steps to diagnose and treat CTE.
