ABSTRACT

Biological and socio-cultural factors are known to impact health outcomes in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Disentangling their role requires both preclinical studies, investigating the mechanistic basis for differential outcomes, and a more diverse pool of clinical and behavioral data from affected individuals. Tailored approaches are essential to enhancing equity in TBI outcomes.
