The incidence and prevalence of neurological diseases are constantly increasing, and their number will rise even more, due to the aging of the world population and the increased availability of diagnostic procedures.

Traumatic brain injury is one of the major causes of disability and death and requires specific prevention measures and treatment, that are out of the scope of this article [1,2].
