Connor Martin and his family donated his brother Kevin Ash's and evidence of CTE was discovered, a condition that can only be diagnosed after death. Kevin's family encourages others to donate as well so we can learn more about brain injuries and CTE.
Veteran Morgan Luttrell doesn't regret his military service, despite all the dangers he knew about going in. But the more we learn about the brain, the we can help prevent or repair those injuries to the brain.
With access to the medical records of over 500,000 veterans researchers would have invaluable data on the brain and, hopefully, help them find more efficient diagnosises and treaments for TBI patients like veteran Morgan Luttrell.
Veteran Morgan Luttrell wasn't interested in focusing his studies on brain injuries, but he quickly became a resource for those who had questions. Soon he was helping others by sharing his experiences and connections.
Veteran Morgan Luttrell traveled the country looking for help after the injuries to his brain and body. He found the most with Dr. James Kelly at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE). They provided him with a whole picture and a plan.
Those in the military go through so much and that can lead to issues once they leave the service. They can get help for themselves by seeking out treatments, but they can also help others going through the same thing.
Veteran Jonathan Warren got five CT scans and five MRIs over the course of his military career and each time they found nothing to explain his changed behavior. Then he got an EEG and everything changed.

He woke up with a TBI and developed a healing plan with healthy eating, acupuncture, speech therapy, neurofeedback, and high cardio velodrome track riding.
Members of the medical community literally take their lives in their hands every day they go to work. It’s hard not to feel a bit humbled by that courage. My first face-to-face encounter with First Responders was just over a decade ago. In November of 2010 fate saw fit that most of the First Responders from our Main Street Fire Station and I would meet.
A study examining the effect of the immune receptor known as Toll-like Receptor 4, or TLR4, on how memory functions in both the normal and injured brain has found vastly different cellular pathways contribute to the receptor's effects on excitability in the uninjured and injured brain.
