The chronic effects from TBIs, whether single or repeated, on chronic disabling symptoms, on recovery from combat and trauma-related comorbidities, and on long-term brain function in veterans and service members are not know. The overarching goals of CENC are to examine the critical issues related to the identification and characterization of the anatomic, molecular and physiological mechanisms of chronic brain injury and potential neurodegeneration. The specific research studies have been designed to directly address the proposed consortium objectives and focus areas, to build on and leverage existing TBI research activities across the network, to provide meaningful answers to the current questions facing individuals and organizations affected by neurotrauma, and to identify and lead a way ahead.
