The authors conclude that the elevated occurrence of these emotional problems should be carefully considered in the treatment and care of TBI patients, since they may negatively impact recovery and later quality-of-life.
The team, led by postdoctoral researcher Ester Kwon, engineered nanoparticles to target neurons by borrowing a protein from the rabies virus.
They also loaded the particles with a strip of RNA designed to inhibit the production of a protein associated with neuronal cell death.
