Traumatic brain injury (TBI) and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) are commonly seen on the news and featured in public media. Falls are the leading cause of TBI in the elderly worldwide, while CTE is a growing hazard often linked to repetitive mild concussions to the brain, often starting in childhood with exposure to violent sports. TBI is a risk factor in older adults for Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and CTE is a risk factor for early AD, Parkinson’s disease, and even suicide. This session will focus on prevalence, pathophysiology, symptoms, and treatment of TBI and CTE and their unique relationship to aging and AD.
