Traumatic brain injuries linked to dementia in older adults

A recent study published in the journal Lancet Psychiatry provides new evidence of a link between traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, in older adults.

How car accidents can cause traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injury may occur as a result of the kind of head trauma many car accidents cause. In many crashes, drivers and passengers travel at a high speed and come to a sudden halt. In addition to the likelihood of hitting your head on a hard surface, the sudden cessation of motion can cause the brain to bump violently against the skull, which may also result in damage.

While many of these injuries have been attempted to be mitigated through the use of safety equipment and helmets, the effectiveness of this equipment has been questionable at best.
