The method may include conducting one or more amplification reactions, including contacting a portion of the biological sample with a monomeric, folded tau protein to form an incubation mixture. Each amplification reaction may include determining a presence or amount of the misfolded tau protein in the biological sample according to the amplified portion of the misfolded tau protein. Methods for evaluating the risk of neurodegenerative disease or disorder in a subject having suffered from brain injury are also described.
