This month's JHTR features a topical issue on “Inflammation and Traumatic Brain Injury” organized by one of our Editors, Lisa Brenner. How the autonomic system deploys inflammation over time is one of the most exciting emerging topics in TBI research. We have been aware of the acute cascade of changes initiated by the inflammatory system but only recently are we envisioning how chronic inflammatory processes could be responsible for changes we see in the years following even mild TBI. As Drs. Brenner and Morales state in the Preface, "Given the nascent state of research regarding systemic inflammation and TBI, we sought articles focused on both mechanistic (e.g., changes in blood markers that reflect cell injury and/or neuroinflammation) and clinical (e.g., onset of secondary health conditions) implications…..As with most TBI-related research, papers presented highlight variability in findings associated with both the heterogeneity among individuals sustaining injuries, as well as injuries sustained." Enjoy!
