    Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy

    Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy is a degenerative disease that effects the brain and believed to be caused by repeated head trauma resulting in large accumulations of tau proteins, killing cells in regions responsible for mood, emotions, and executive functioning.1 The chronic injuries sustained by repeated and untreated concussions has shown to damage the brain over time. 2

    Numerous former professional athletes, particularly former National Football League players are believed to have had this disease, however the NFL denies the validity of the research on CTE.3
