The proposed research will use a personalized precision medicine approach to establish a preclinical model of chronic repetitive mild traumatic brain injury (rmTBI). The first objective of the proposed research is the elucidation of the blood molecular signature for chronic rat rmTBI. The second objective is to test whether administration of the neuroprotective agent neuregulin-1 (NRG-1) improves behavioral performance in this model. This is highly relevant because a significant military and vet...
