Study confirms link between traumatic brain injury, dementia

April 30, 2018

More than 300 media outlets ran coverage of the study published in Lancet Psychiatry lead by Jesse Fann, professor of psychiatry and behavioral medicine at UW Medicine.

A large study offers more evidence of a link between traumatic brain injuries and dementia later in life, with repeated injuries and severe ones posing the greatest danger.
Researchers analyzed 36 years of health records of 2.8 million people in Denmark, where a national health system makes it possible to explore connections in a far-reaching way.
