The Brain Health Education and Research Institute’s mission is to change the way we address protection from, and treatment of, all forms brain injury. From proactively taking care of our brain health on an ongoing basis, to post-injury treatment, to recovery, BHERI is committed to being at the forefront of research and education. Omega-3 fatty acids, especially docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are critical to brain health and are one of the principal building blocks of the brain. BHERI supports Continuing research on Omega-3′s (ALA, DHA & EPA) and their impact on brain health. To learn more about our Mission, please visit our Mission page.

New molecules protect brain after mild traumatic brain injury

Scientists at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem have shown that a single dose of a new molecule they developed can effectively protect the brain from inflammation, cell death, and cognitive impairments that often follow a mild TBI. These changes could result from an increase in glutamate levels, oxidative stress, opening of the blood-brain-barrier, and in particular…

Athletes with concussion maintain improvements after use of mirroring neurotechnology

Brain State Technologies announces that a series of young athletes with long-term symptoms after concussion showed a variety of lasting improvements, after using HIRREM® neurotechnology. At three months, the athletes maintained their reduction of symptoms, and they had all returned to full physical exercise. The study included nineteen participants, who had concussion symptoms for an average…
