NIH and NFL tackle concussion research
Date:12/16/2013

iners and physicians at Indiana University and local high schools, plan to take advantage of the involuntary, reflex nature of eye movements. They will develop a portable eye tracking instrument that can be used to help diagnose concussions on the sidelines and to monitor injury progression in high school and college athletes. Drs. Port and Hitzeman will compare the eye tracking data to results from a commonly used cognitive test to determine if changes in eye movement can serve as a biomarker for sports-related mild traumatic brain injury. If successful, this study will help provide an objective and more reliable measure to detect traumatic brain injury than is currently available.

  • Imaging and Biomarkers in Adolescents Cleared for Return to Play After Concussion
    Principal Investigator: Harvey Levin, Ph.D., Baylor College of Medicine, Houston

    Sports concussions may cause persistent long-term effects in young athletes -- in some cases, even after they have been allowed to return to play. Using a variety of neuroimaging techniques, Dr. Levin and his group will look at the effects of sports-related concussions on brain structure and function one month following injury in adolescents who have been cleared to play. In addition, this project will evaluate microRNAs (miRNAs) as potential biomarkers for concussions and recovery. These are small portions of RNA (a molecule that is similar to DNA, which contains our genetic code) that play a role in turning genes on or off. The researchers plan to measure levels of specific miRNAs and determine if they correspond with cognitive test results and neuroimaging data.
