Project Summery Overall Research Strategy: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) from open-field blast or repetitive mild head impact to human tau transgenic mice will induce Alzheimer-relevant, tau-dependent pathology, that can be rescued by suppression of tau expression or tau aggregation inhibitors. Blast-induced tau-related pathological changes will be analyzed in brains from veterans and mice exposed to blast, and biomarkers for TBI, chronic traumatic en- cephalopathy (CTE) and Alzheimer-pathology w...
