Research Shows MRI-DTI Techniques Can Track mTBI

In a recent study, researchers found a total of seven brain-imaging predictors that were related to cognitive function in professional fighters. Some of these predictors showed changes in the thickness and volume of gray matter, and in the integrity of the white matter tracts of the fighter’s brains. More...
