In current US Military operations, warfighters are frequently subjected to blast events, which can lead to traumatic brain injury (TBI). The causes of mild and moderate TBI are not yet well understood by the medical community, and current diagnoses rely on identifying behavioral or physiological symptoms. Characterizing the brain response to various threats should provide a better understanding of possible injury mechanisms, and this knowledge could be applied to equipment design for prevention of TBI.
