CTE: The Scary Consequence Of Repeated Head Trauma — The Dark Side Of Life

Most documented cases of CTE have occurred in athletes with mild repetitive brain trauma (RBT) over an extended period of time. Although the exact amount of trauma requires for the condition to occur is unknown it’s believed that it takes many years to develop it. The physical appearance of CTE include a reduction in brain weight, associated with loss of the frontal and temporal cortices as well as the medial temporal lobe. Wow, I sound so smart right now but I’m not. I researched all of this. Okay, time for more smart sounding stuff. While there is atrophy in some parts of the brain studies have found that the lateral ventricles and the third ventricle are often enlarged. In rare cases dilation of the fourth ventricle have also been found. Don’t ask me to point out where all these things are on a human brain because I couldn’t do it. A small group of people suffering from CTE also have chronic traumatic encephalomyopathy (CTEM), which is characterized by symptoms that mimic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease). Progressive muscle weakness, balance, and walking seem to be some early signs of CTEM.
