Mild TBI Linked to Eye Movement Impairment
According to researchers at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences (USU), mild traumatic brain injuries (TBI) could potentially be linked to eye movement impairment. This discovery can lead to potentially more effective ways of identifying long-term chronic effects of those with this condition. “The tests that are typically used to asses brain injury can be impacted by non-neurological factors, such as test-taking effort, mood, or pre-injury ability,” said Ettenhofer. “Most of these tests rely on our hands or our vocal systems, to press a button, write an answer, or speak a response. However, our eyes offer a much more direct pathway to the brain. By using eye movements, we may be able to cut through a lot of this ‘noise’ and separate those who fully recover after injury from those who experience more chronic problems.” To read more, click here.
