Traumatic Brain Injury - or TBI, as it is commonly known - has been called the "signature injury" of the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.    Physicians at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center (JJPVAMC) have made important strides toward a better understanding of the long term effects of brain injuries.    In a recent article featured in the New England Journal of Medicine, JJP staff physician, Samuel Gandy, and his colleagues, highlight some of their findings.   Review the complete article at the following link:  http://www.nejm.org/doi/pdf/10.1056/NEJMp1007051
