Prof. Daphne Atlas developed novel peptides that protect cognitive function after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI)

Mild brain injury (mTBI) can be caused by accidents and falls at school, on the road, in sports fields and on the battlefield, and is common mainly among children, athletes and the elderly.

The injury does not carry external signs, but like severe brain injury, it is accompanied by secondary damage to brain function, which affects, among other things, memory, behavior, and emotions.

Antioxidant anti-inflammatory drugs developed in the laboratory of Prof. Daphne Atlas have been shown to be effective in preventing damage associated with mild brain injury in experiments on model mice.
