Autism open access is one of the leading Scholarly journals in brain injury. The journal strives to add in theoretical and technological innovations as part of its publishing remit and is devoted to publishing the highest quality papers. The administration of the journal is integrative, reflecting the fact that imaging neuroscience is a multi-disciplinary science.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the disruption of brain function due to externally applied forces either causing acceleration or deceleration of the brain or direct physical contact of an object with the brain or head. TBI can be classified into primary and secondary injuries. Primary injuries occur at the moment of injury, while secondary injuries occur after the moment of impact, often causing additional damage to an already injured brain. Another classification divides TBI into focal injuries or diffuse injuries. TBI can also be graded by severity: mild, moderate and severe, with severe TBI usually defined as a Glasgow Coma Score for 8 or less with a mental status change exceeding 6 hours. A mild head injury is defined as a mental status change lasting less than 30 minutes from the time of the injury; a moderate TBI has an associated mental status change lasting30 minutes to 6 hours.
OMICS is devoted to the prompt publication of original findings of the highest scientific priority and value that provide novel mechanistic insights, represent a clear advance over previous Studies and have the potential to generate exciting future research.
