Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy

Author(s): Katty Jones

CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) is a progressive neurodegenerative condition induced by single, episodic, or recurrent blunt force hits to the head and the transfer of vibration forces to the brain. Clinically, CTE manifests as a composite syndrome of psychiatric conditions, behavioral and cognitive loss, and sensory impairment, just without sensorimotor dysfunction. CTE signs can start with persistent onset of acute traumatic brain injury (TBI) after a confirmed episode of brain trauma or after a hidden period of days, months, months, and years, up to 40 years after a confirmed episode of neurological damage or the cessation of recurrent TBI.
