Professor L. Stephen Miller and graduate student Douglas Terry were recently recognized by UGA Today and other news sources for their recent research on the long-term effects of concussions. Their study, recently published in the journal Brain Injury, found minimal differences in cognitive functioning and brain activation patterns when comparing young athletes with a history of concussions to athletes without concussions.
Their new study is examining the effects of concussions later in life. They are currently recruiting male volunteers ages 40 to 65 who did or did not sustain concussions earlier in life. Emailugafootballstudy@gmail.com or call (706) 542-3076 for more information.
