About Eric Brengel
Second-year Ph.D. student interested in the neuropathology of repetitive concussion history in the aging brain. Specifically, current research brings together preclinical neuroimaging, histology, behavioral assays, and the novel momentum exchange model to identify dietary risk factors and treatments for repetitive concussion-related neurodegeneration in a highly translational setting. Previous work at the University of Delaware (M.S. 2022, B.S./B.A. 2021) includes research elucidating the counteracting effects of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders and aerobic exercise on central nervous system myelination.
