Repeated concussions can thicken the skull, Monash University study finds

New research has found that repeated concussions can thicken the structure of skull bones. Previous studies have shown damage to the brain following concussion, but have not looked at the brain’s protective covering.

A Monash-led study published in the journal Scientific Reports by Associate Professor Bridgette Semple from the Monash University’s Central Clinical School Department of Neuroscience, found that repeated concussions resulted in thicker, denser bones in the skull.

Monash AI model may help epilepsy patients become seizure-free

The 2D plane shows the machine learning model is able to
identify patterns between patients at the different centres.

A study led by Monash University and believed to be a world first has demonstrated that an Artificial Intelligence (AI)  model can potentially predict the best personalised, anti-seizure medication for patients with newly diagnosed epilepsy.

The predictive model, once fully developed, would spare these patients the uncertainty of not knowing when their lives would be returned to normal by taking anti-seizure medications, and possibly the harmful side-effects associated with some drugs.
