Research Outline

Traumatic Brain Injury & Dementia/Alzheimer's


Identify credible evidence to substantiate the assertion that a traumatic brain injury can worsen and/or accelerate preexisting dementia and/or Alzheimer's disease.
  • Credible evidence should be defined as statements by experts (e.g., neurologists), excerpts from research studies and the like.
  • Evidence should focus on the correlation between the occurrence of a moderate or mild traumatic brain injury and dementia/Alzheimer's disease.
  • Data should support the trial argument that an elderly male (79 years old) with preexisting dementia and Alzheimer's disease experienced a worsening/acceleration of these conditions following a slip and fall accident.
