The Brain Adaptations Driving Behavioral Abnormalities after Repetitive Head Impact

An athletic career filled with head impacts predisposes athletes to chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a neurodegenerative disease characterized by behavioral deficits, cognitive impairment, and p-tau pathology in the sulcal depths where the brain is most susceptible to stress and strain. A burning question in the CTE field is to the role of p-tau in behavioral impairments: is it causative, downstream, or incidental?

This talk will explore the physiological changes that occur in the brain after HF-HI. Based on RNA sequencing, behavioral changes, electrophysiological analysis, calcium imaging, and pharmacological intervention, an alternative hypothesis for behavioral abnormalities after head impact will be proposed.
