3D illustration of the glucose transporter 1 (GLUT1) protein within the cell membrane, showing how GLUT1 undergoes a conformational change upon glucose binding. This change allows glucose to be released into the cell, moving naturally down its concentration gradient.
Chronic traumatic encephalopathy

Changes as the disease progresses includes a buildup of tau proteins, brain atrophy, cognitive impairment, and dementia. Also outlined are the prevention and return to play guidelines recommended for individuals that have experienced a traumatic brain injury.
