Neuroscience research links high school football to significant brain connectivity changes

by Eric W. Dolan in Mental Health, Neuroimaging Researchers have discovered significant changes in the brain function of high school football players over a single season, despite the absence of diagnosed concussions. Their study, published in Scientific Reports, found that their brain connectivity was altered to a point where their individual ‘brain fingerprints’ became less distinguishable. A growing

New Hope for Motor Neuron Diseases?

Motor neuron diseases like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) have devastating effects on movement, independence, and ultimately patients’ lives. Few effective treatments exist to slow the degeneration of motor neurons that transmit signals from the brain to control muscle contractions. But emerging research suggests that hyperbaric oxygen therapy may have untapped

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (1.5 ATA) in Treating Sports-Related TBI/CTE: Two Case Reports

Introduction In recent years, there has been growing interest in exploring alternative treatment options for sports-related traumatic brain injury (TBI) and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). One such therapy that has shown promise is hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). This article summarizes the findings of a paper titled “Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (1.5 ATA) in treating sports-related TBI/CTE:

A Breakthrough in Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI)

Introduction Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and its associated post-concussive symptoms have become a significant concern in recent years. The National Brain Injury, Rescue and Rehabilitation Study aimed to explore the potential benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in the treatment of chronic mTBI. This article provides an overview of the study design, outcomes, and

A Proposed Research Pathway using HBOT for TBI

Introduction Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a significant concern in sports, particularly for athletes prone to head injuries. The impact of concussions and other head traumas on athletes’ long-term health and well-being has prompted the need for further research and effective treatment options. This article will explore a proposed research pathway that utilises Hyperbaric Oxygen
