The Youth Sport Podcast With Rianna Poskin

Rianna with Dr. Thor Stein on CTE, ALS, Contact Sports and The Brain Bank

September 23, 2021

This episode is the second part of a 2 part conversation on CTE, ALS and contact sports. If you haven't listened to part 1 yet, you can find it here.

In part 2 of my conversation I get to learn more about what is going on in the brain right from the researcher himself!

Dr. Stein's research interests involve the study of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer disease and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). He studies the role of trauma in the abnormal accumulation of tau and proteins involved in RNA processing. He is an acting neuropathologist involved with the brain banks for the Boston University Alzheimer Disease Center, CTE Center, Framingham Heart Study, as well as the National Veterans Administration ALS brain bank.

Dr. Stein is part of the Neuropathology Core of the SLI-BU CTE Brain Bank, where he conducts neuropathological analysis of brain tissue and helps maintain the SLI-BU CTE Brain Bank.
