Nearly Half of People Show Signs of Brain Injury Six Months After Concussion, Study Finds

A new study has revealed that almost half of the people who suffer a concussion still show signs of brain injury six months later. The research, published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry, suggests that many people who experience concussions may require more support than previously thought.

The study followed 115 people who had experienced a concussion, using MRI scans to monitor their brains over six months. Nearly half of the participants still showed signs of brain injury at the end of the six-month period, including structural changes in the brain and difficulties with memory and concentration.

The findings highlight the importance of monitoring people who have experienced concussions for longer periods of time and providing appropriate support and rehabilitation. In many cases, people may require ongoing medical attention and may be unable to return to work or daily activities as usual.

Concussions are a common form of traumatic brain injury (TBI), often resulting from accidents such as falls, sports injuries, and car crashes. TBIs can have serious and long-lasting effects on a person’s cognitive and emotional functioning, as well as their physical health.
