Brain damage linked to stroke in CTE
CTE is a stroke that occurs when the blood vessels in the brain become blocked.
Symptoms include loss of consciousness, dizziness, muscle spasms and coma.
CTE can also cause permanent damage to the brain, which can result in permanent disability or death.
Researchers from the University of Washington in Seattle found a significant link between CTE and cognitive impairment.
In a study published in the journal Neurology, the team used a technique called diffusion tensor imaging to look at how the blood flow changes in brain regions during stroke.
When a person with a stroke is given a high-dose CTE treatment, they experience a decrease in blood flow in the region of the brain responsible for processing information.
However, the blood pressure drops as the stroke progresses, and this can cause damage to other areas of the body.
The researchers believe that this decreased blood flow is the result of a disruption in the flow of blood between the brain and the surrounding brain tissue.
These findings were supported by research from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
“The team used diffusion tensors to map blood flow across the brain in stroke patients with and without CTE, and found that the blood volume decreases in regions of the cortex, a region that processes visual information,” said lead author Sarah Toth, a researcher in the Department of Psychology at UW.
“This change in blood volume was not associated with changes in the white matter structure, the structure of the connections between neurons.”
The team also found that in people with stroke who have cognitive impairment, the decrease in brain blood flow can have a negative effect on cognitive functioning.
This may have an impact on how the brain responds to cognitive challenges, which are key for people with cognitive impairment to make progress.
Toth said that it was important to get to the bottom of how the reduced blood flow affects people with CTE.
She said that understanding the underlying mechanisms that underlie these changes in bloodflow may help scientists develop treatments to help people with the condition.

They added that they believe that the finding could be used to design CTE treatments that are safer and less disruptive for stroke patients.
