Abstract : Studies suggest an increased risk of Alzheimers disease (AD) and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Greater understanding of the chronic effects of TBI may lead to new therapies. This proposal will add a TBI cohort, tau PET imaging and 7T-MRI to the Australian Imaging Biomarkers and Lifestyle - Veterans study (AIBL-VETS) of post-traumatic stress disorder and neurodegeneration. AIBL researchers have an outstanding international record in the development of tau and amyloid PET imaging.
