Episode Info:

Dr. Ann McKee is a leading neuropathologist and researcher into the human brain, and what happens to that brain after a servicemember is exposed to a blast. We talk about CTE, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a neural degenerative disease that affects some TBI victims. If you remember our conversation with Joy Kieffer about her son SGT Kevin Ash (http://bit.ly/2EUiUFl), Dr. McKee examined SGT Ash's brain after he passed. Dr. McKee mentions the Chronic Effects of Neurotrauma Consortium (CENC) and a website where veterans can donate their brains to science. You can get more information here: http://bit.ly/2OjcG7o
