Abstract

This study analyzed pooled clinical and neuropathological data of older adults free of dementia from three prospective cohort studies and found that traumatic brain injury with loss of consciousness was associated with risk for Lewy body accumulation, Parkinson’s disease, and progression of Parkinsonism, but not dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, neuritic plaques, or neurofibrillary tangles.
