Title: Case Study of the Four-Year Neuropsychological Changes in an Elderly Male with Possible Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy
Abstract: Research demonstrates that the brain’s response to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is variable with age and the effects of TBI on the elderly are a critical and global public health concern, from both medical and a neuropsychological perspective. Currently, there is scant research on the effects of TBI, including Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), on the elderly. Specifically, there is a paucity of literature regarding longitudinal neuropsychological changes in elderly post-TBI individuals. This dissertation will present a Single Case Research Design (SCRED) analysis of an elderly individual with possible Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy and the associated neuropsychological changes over 49-months.
