Reuters Health - 23/12/2021 - Young military veterans with mild traumatic brain injuries may have subtle, premature decline in certain cognitive domains that are similar to changes in the brain seen in early-stage Parkinson disease patients who are decades older, a recent study suggests. For the analysis, researchers compared cognitive test results for veterans with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), an IQ and age-matched group of veterans without mTBI, healthy controls without military experience, and an IQ-matched group of early-stage Parkinson disease patients without dementia. Parkinson disease patients had a neurologist-confirmed diagnosis with advanced cases screened out; mTBI cases were based on injuries with loss of consciousness for 30 minutes or less, without substantial memory loss or confusion for the period within 24 hours of injury. The main outcomes assessed in the analysis were time to completion for the Trail Making Test -A and -B (TMT-A, TMT-B), w...
