Research Core Director Dr. James Eckner compares the pre/post-season changes of non-contact, contact, and collision sport athletes, over multiple seasons of play, to asses their neurological outcome. His findings suggest that participating in sports having repetitive head impacts may not have clinically meaningful cumulative effects over the course of a season, nor over four consecutive seasons, in high school and collegiate athletes.
