Cerebrovascular Reactivity in American Football Players

Investigators will measure cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during the chronic phase after repetitive mild traumatic brain injury (rmTBI) as a biomarker of traumatic cerebrovascular injury (TCVI). We hypothesize that CVR will be decreased in patients with rmTBI and that these decreases ...

Post-Concussion Syndrome in Professional Athletes: A Multidisciplinary Study

We hypothesize that repeated concussions in retired professional athletes will be associated with abnormalities in neurological, neuropsychological, biofluids and neuroimaging assessments. The primary objectives of the study are: To determine the effects of repeated concussions on neurological, neuropsychological and psychosocial functioning. To determine the relationship between repeated concussions and neuroanatomical ...

Phase N/A

Illuminating Neuropsychological Dysfunction and Systemic Inflammatory Mechanisms Gleaned After Hospitalization in Trauma-ICU Study

Cognitive skills are the crucial abilities required to manage money, maintain employment, and live independently. Long-term cognitive impairment (LTCI) is a disabling loss of these skills that can persist for months to years. LTCI frequently occurs after primary brain injury (e.g., traumatic brain injury, hypoxia), but older LTCI research has ...

The DIAGNOSE-CTE Research Project

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by a distinct deposition of phosphorylated tau (p-tau) in neurons and astrocytes in a pattern that is unique from other tauopathies, including Alzheimer's disease (AD). Although the neuropathological features of CTE have become further clarified in recent years, the clinical presentation ...

Phase N/A

Myelin Imaging in Concussed High School Football Players

The lack of highly sensitive clinical neuroimaging and neuropsychiatric markers of subtle changes due to mTBI makes it difficult to characterize injury severity and to predict outcomes. White matter tracts in the brain, both myelinated and non-myelinated, are susceptible to damage from impact-acceleration forces experienced during a TBI,5-7 and there ...

Phase N/A

Sildenafil Treatment for Mild TBI

In this study, 100 professional boxers that experience a concussion will be enrolled, randomized to either placebo or sildenafil (60mg) drug treatment, and arterial spin labeling and BOLD-MRI with hypercapnia will used to assess CBF and CVR, respectively. Symptom reporting, blood biomarkers, and neuropsychological testing will also be conducted. The ...
