Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive brain condition that’s thought to be caused by repeated blows to the head and repeated episodes of concussion. It’s particularly associated with contact sports, such as boxing or American football. Any prolonged activity that involves repeated blows to the head or recurrent episodes of concussion is thought to increase the risk of getting CTE. CTE and concussion are separate conditions. Many people who are concussed do not go on to develop CTE, but evidence suggests a pattern of repeated minor head injuries increases the risk.
The symptoms of CTE vary between individuals, but tend to be similar to those of other types of degenerative brain conditions, particularly Alzheimer’s disease. CTE usually begins gradually several years after receiving repetitive blows to the head or repeated concussions. The symptoms affect the functioning of the brain and eventually lead to dementia.
Symptoms:
short term memory loss – such as asking the same question several times, or having difficulty remembering names or phone numbers
changes in mood – mood swings, depression, and feeling increasingly anxious, frustrated or agitated
increasing confusion and disorientation – getting lost, wandering or not knowing what time of day it is
difficulty thinking – hard to make decisions
There’s currently no test to diagnose CTE. A diagnosis is based on a history of participating in contact sports, plus the symptoms and clinical features. Brain scan in regards to CTE, the changes to the brain do not always show up on routine brain scans or may be similar to other conditions. So a common method is analyzation of the brain after post mortem.
