“Precision Measurement and Prevention of Mild Brain Trauma”

Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) affects 55 million people worldwide and can lead to neurodegenerative disease. My goal is to enable early detection and prevention of mTBI. We have pioneered sensing of head acceleration through the teeth, which has spawned a new industry of “smart” mouthguards. In my laboratory, we use this acceleration data to drive finite element models of the brain, combined with sensitive neuroimaging to discover mechanisms of mTBI. I will present preliminary data that suggests that blood brain barrier disruption, a potential initiator of neurodegeneration, is a common mechanism of mTBI in contact sports.  Finally, I will present data on a technology we recently invented that has the potential to prevent mTBI when placed in helmets.
