Lithium, used to treat affective disorders for more than a half-century, has neurotrophic and neuroprotective properties that may help preserve cognitive function in patients with bipolar disorder and possibly in those with alzheimer disease. The lab-based study, published in march 2017 in experimental neurology, concludes that lithium modestly improved cognitive performance in rats when tested 14 days after they received a tbi the research also finds that lithium does not reduce motor impairment or brain tissue loss following tbi.
