A. Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) (6 pt)

  • What is chronic traumatic encephalopathy: what are the causes, symptoms, treatments?
  • What has happened biologically to the brain? How is the tissue affected?
  • How is it diagnosed?
  • How many people are affected by this in the US?
  • Who is most susceptible?
  • Remember to write your answer as a paragraph, not as notes. I recommend starting your research with the Clinical View 13.1 on traumatic brain injury (page 481 in the book). I also recommend researching CTE on Mayo Clinic, as well as other medical websites, such has the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
