Each year, about 1.5 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). In the military, blast injuries are common. Of the soldiers who are injured, between 15 and 30 percent will develop neurophychiatric disorders later on that can include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression. While men are more likely to suffer from a TBI, women have a higher risk of developing a disorder related to their mental health, according to a recent study presented at the Endocrine Society's 99th meeting in Orlando, Florida.
