Local concussion study publishes more promising results

Gregory Myer, PhD, the director of Research in the Division of Sports Medicine at Cincinnati Children’s, said the first football study looked at the structural component, while this study analyzed the functional component, “looking at more of how the brain functions using a different technology of fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging).”
