Study finds myelin damage linked to differing TBI recovery times

New research suggests damage to the fatty sheaths around the brain's nerve fibers — not injury severity — might explain why some youngsters bounce back quickly from a traumatic brain injury while others suffer side effects for years. A study conducted by researchers at UCLA and the University of Southern California identified possible biomarkers physicians could use to predict higher-risk patients who require closer monitoring.
