Blood Test For Brain Injury?

As you know from previous posts the U.S. Army and the N.F.L. have been in the news for their respective advances in traumatic brain injury diagnosis, treatment and prevention.  A new article in Discover talks about a potential blood test for brain injuries.  The test has not been perfected, but if it is it would be signifcant for legal community.  Often a brain injury diagnosis is based upon subjective criteria and at trial it is attacked by defense attorneys as being phony. The defense attorneys usually claim the plaintiff is simply a malingerer.

A blood test that is acknowledged as accurate would be of great value in the context of personal injury trials and litigation.
