Heading for Trouble

Our editorial (previously teased) on CTE risks associated with playing football (soccer) is now out on the British Journal of Sports Medicine. It is open access and here.

In other news, I was recently at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference, where I presented a poster on memory loss in late-life depression. The most exciting finding, from my memory-obsessed perspective, is that the recency ratio (also here) does a great job of picking up subtle changes in biomarkers levels in individuals who show no cognitive impairment whatsoever, despite being depressed.

Poster and some more fluff AAIC 17 handout.
