Can Head Trauma Cause Alzheimer's?
Dr. Juan Troncoso is director of the Brain Resource Center at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Troncoso’s research focuses on the neuropathology of normal aging and the pathology, pathogenesis and therapy of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Frontotemporal Dementia, Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease.
His research encompasses clinical-pathological correlations, morphological studies using unbiased stereology, and investigations of the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders in relevant genetically-engineered mouse models and in vitro systems. In recent years, the work of Dr. Troncoso and his collaborators has focused predominantly on the asymptomatic and early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
One of the most robust environmental risk factors identified for Alzheimer’s disease is traumatic brain injury. This is having repercussions for those returning from fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
