Our Michigan brain injury lawyers often represent injury and accident victims who have suffered concussion injuries. In the past, there was a debate in the medical and scientific community as to whether concussions cause damage to the actual structure of the brain. A new study on concussion injuries by researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University provides evidence that concussions do involve damage to the brain tissue.
Using new radiology techniques, the researchers compared 20 people with known concussion injuries (auto accidents and falls) to 20 healthy control subjects. After undergoing imaging and testing within two weeks of their accidents, the researchers noticed a physical difference in the structures of the brain between the two groups. It is believed that these abnormalities can be the cause of executive function problems on the concussion patients. Additional studies and research continues on this condition.Google+
