Studies suggest an increased risk of Alzheimers disease AD and chronic traumatic encephalopathy CTE after traumatic brain injury TBI. Greater understanding of the chronic effects of TBI may lead to new therapies. This proposal will add a TBI cohort, tau PET imaging and 7T-MRI to the Australian Imaging Biomarkers and Lifestyle - Veterans study AIBL-VETS of post-traumatic stress disorder and neurodegeneration. AIBL researchers have an outstanding international record in the development of tau and amyloid PET imaging.
