HealthDay reported that Alzheimer’s disease and traumatic brain injury appear to affect the brain in similar ways, according to a study that may point to new ways to identify people at high risk for Alzheimer’s. The study included 33 people who suffered TBIs in falls; 66 people with Alzheimer’s; and a control group of 81 healthy people without a TBI or Alzheimer’s. Compared to the control group, the TBI and Alzheimer’s patients had more cortical thinning. The findings were published in the journal GeroScience.
