New Purdue Study

The Journal of Neurotrauma will be posting results of a new study on concussions.  Performed at Purdue University, the study looked into possible brain disruption in the absence of concussion symptoms.

The study was limited due to the low number of participants (21), but it may well lead to the expansion of these “sub-clinical” concussions and long-term effects.

One noteworthy case is Owen Thomas; his CTE and suicide, and the fact that he had never been diagnosed with a concussion.
