The Pentagon is spending an astoundingly high $300 million dollars this summer for research on traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder. This research may eventually enable better treatments for both troops and civilians alike. The $300 million will fund approximately 171 research projects. These projects will focus on these two brain disorders which are the most prevalent in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Every year about 1.4 million americans suffer from traumatic brain injury, so this research will likely benefit those people as well. You can read more about this development in this USA today article.
