Biomarker for depression symptoms in patients with traumatic brain injury potentially identified
Identification of depression symptoms in those with traumatic brain injury (TBI) may have just gotten far easier. It has been discovered that about half of those with a diagnosed TBI will also experience depression within the next year. According to the Center for BrainHealth at the University of Texas at Dallas, part of the challenge in diagnosing depression symptoms is that there are many similarities between TBI symptoms and those of depression.
“It is very difficult to tell the difference between traumatic brain injury symptoms and depression symptoms,” Kihwan Han, PhD., reported.
