Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) has emerged as a significant public health problem, particularly among those in the military or athletes involved in contact sports such as boxing and football. It is believed that CTE is caused, in part, by exposure to repetitive brain trauma years or decades prior to the initial symptoms of neurodegenerative disease. This series, published in Alzheimer's Research & Therapy, addresses a range of topics pertinent to CTE, including up–to–date reviews of the neuropathology, neuropathogenesis, and clinical aspects of this tauopathy, including clinical presentation, neuroimaging, and diagnostic features. This series of articles has not been sponsored. All articles have undergone the journal’s standard peer review process overseen by the Series Editor, with final decisions made by the Editors in Chief.
