About this Research Topic
Traumatic brain injury is increasingly being recognized as a leading cause for pituitary hormonal dysfunction. However, several gaps in the knowledge exist regarding its prevalence, pathophysiology, natural history, diagnosis and clinical relevance, as well as the possible existence of sexual differences in the pathology and the recovery.
This Research Topic will focus on the current state of knowledge of the basic and clinical aspects of neuroendocrine dysfunction after traumatic brain injury. We invite original research, reviews, mini-reviews and other article types that focus on pathophysiologic aspects in animal models, population-based, prevalence, or therapeutic studies in animals or humans, with a strong emphasis on new opportunities for therapeutics that could emerge from better understanding of these processes.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
