MONDAY, March 19, 2018 -- Young children who sustain a severe head injury may struggle with attention problems as they grow older, researchers say.
A new study reports that kids who sustained a severe traumatic brain injury around ages 3 to 7 are three and a half times more likely to develop attention deficit hyperactivity disorder by the time they enter middle school.
TUESDAY, Jan. 30, 2018 -- A serious head injury may increase the risk for dementia even decades later, a new, large study suggests.
A traumatic injury to the brain -- such as a concussion from a sports collision or a motor vehicle accident -- is already associated with short-term risk of dementia. But the new research finds that, although the risk decreases over time, it still continues for many years.
