New Study Identifies Brain’s Immune System as Origin for Seizures

Chronic seizures caused by traumatic head injuries may result from chemicals released by the brain’s immune system attempting to repair the injured site, according to a study led by the University of Colorado at Boulder.  Studies like this are exciting because they give hope to further treatments for underlying conditions caused by traumatic brain injuries.  I marvel at the ability of my clients who have suffered brain injuries to cope with the myriad of different complexes that occur after such an event.  Whereas a broken leg is a broken leg and the victim of that has a definable limit on the rehabilitation process, brain injuries have so many clinical outcomes, including cognitive deficits, physical deficits, seizures, memory and organizational problems, that I am constantly amazed at how families and victims of brain injury cope with all of the different problems.  I like to keep up with the latest studies on brain injury treatment so that I can keep my clients and their families informed of the cutting edge of the TBI rehabilitative process.  To view the entire article surrounding this new study, please click HERE:
