TBI is a dangerous and often difficult disorder to detect, because many of the injuries are both subtle yet occur in a repeated manner. However, TBI can promote neurodegeneration and be an initiating factor for some neurological diseases.

TBI arises from particular environmental scenarios for certain high risk populations. For example, we know that veterans are significantly more likely to sustain a TBI from violent means, including assault or confrontation. Seems obvious, right? However, did you know that even those who only served one tour of duty were at an elevated risk for developing TBI-related health issues?

 

I am sure you are thinking, well I am not in the military, so this doesn’t concern me. Yet, did you know that those experiencing “mild trauma” that result from physical activity, such as contact sports can put certain individuals into a higher risk category for developing TBI. This doesn’t mean students shouldn’t play sports. However, this information is important so that students are aware of the risks they face when playing certain sports.

 

This I just one of many programs the Foundation focuses on, and we hope to continue these information campaigns for many years.

Therefore for today just bring this flyer or a picture of this flyer and show to your server today, Tuesday 10/13/18

All the proceeds help develop our advocacy programs for those with neurological disorders

Thank you!!!!

The Brain Institute of America Foundation – Advocacy Video Campaign Success!

The Brain Institute of America Foundation funds neurological research programs centered around mental health, brain cancer, and other neurological disorders. Funds are provided as grants to recipients for biomedical research dedicated to developing cures or solutions to these challenges. 

The Foundation is also a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching and educating others about mental health, brain disorders, and neurological disease, and also supports programs that promote cognitive function and brain health.

Recently, The Brain Institute of America Foundation developed a campaign to launch a long overdue advocacy video. I am happy to report, we reached our funding goal. Yay! This is for all you survivors out there! Keep on winning by living every day to the fullest.

Thanks all.

Neuronal Development in the Amygdala Differs between Autistic and Neurotypical Individuals

“Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) encompasses an array of neurological differences which ultimately result in a broad variation of atypical behaviors (Baio et al., 2014). The spectrum of disorders refers to what is considered the range between low and high-functioning autism. While the experience of ASD is diverse and unique to each individual, there are a few characteristics that are commonly understood as the criteria for its diagnosis. These characteristics include: heightened sensory experiences, challenges in typical verbal and non-verbal communication, challenges in social interactions, repetitive movements, and consistent habits and behaviors…..” see more

 

Hello, this is Dr. Adams checking in. I wanted to start by first thanking our new team members as they have helped move forward an Autism outreach effort my group launched in early 2018. 

If you go to our autism page, you will see I started posting some interesting scientific articles regarding autism. 

https://braininstituteamerica.com/autism-support/

However, I have refurbished this entire process, and those wanting to know more about the actual science behind autism can subscribe to our news feed at –

https://www.patreon.com/braininstituteofamerica

Here you will see regularly updated content about the latest science in the autism field. Also, depending on the tier you subscribe to, members can get access to many other perks, including brain institute gear, word puzzles, and access to other online social media content.

So take a moment and visit our page, follow us, and subscribe to our feed. 

 

Thank you all for your continued support!

circRNA Library Build Complete

It is with great humility that our Institute has finally achieved the first build of a circRNA library. Our constructs allow for full modification of a number of spliced variants, and for the expression of individual circRNAs within a number of mammalian cell lines with fluorescent tracing capabilities. 

There are a number of researchers working on this same platform, however, our constructs are fully customizable to customer specifications and have been mapped to variants across the transcriptome.

We thank those in support of our cause.
