What we are studying
The purpose of this study is to relate head impacts in youth contact sports to changes in the brain. With this research, we are also looking for volunteers who are male athletes who have never played football, or had a concussion. Volunteers will undergo simple cognitive tests and two brain scans (MRI and MEG). The brain scans do not involve radiation and are completely non-invasive.
You will be paid $50 for completing the pre-season visit and $75 for completing the post-season visit.
