IU School of Medicine researchers awarded $300,000 GE/NFL grant to study concussions
Date:1/23/2014

INDIANAPOLIS -- Researchers at the Indiana University School of Medicine will use advanced neuroimaging techniques to study area high school athletes to learn how concussions affect blood flow in the brain.

Brenna McDonald, Psy.D., and Yang Wang, M.D., at the IU Center for Neuroimaging, were awarded $300,000 for the research, one of 16 grants announced Thursday by GE and the National Football League for the first stage of the $20 million "Head Health Challenge."

"Blood flow is critical to brain functioning, of course, but we know relatively little about the impact of concussion on blood flow in athletes," said Dr. McDonald, associate professor of radiology and imaging sciences.

"This work will improve our understanding of concussion's effect on brain blood flow shortly after the injury and how those changes relate to concussion symptoms and changes in cognitive functioning," she said.

"Using MRI, we not only want to improve our understanding of how concussions affect the brain, but to also improve our ability to detect and manage concussions, including determining when it is safe to return to play," said Dr. Wang, associate professor of radiology and imaging sciences.

The IU researchers will collaborate with Todd Arnold, M.D., and Patrick Kersey, M.D., at St. Vincent Sports Performance.

Scientists at the IU Center for Neuroimaging have been studying the effects of traumatic brain injury using advanced neuroimaging techniques for more than 15 years, with a focus on understanding changes in brain structure and function after mild traumatic brain injury or concussion.

In previous research, McDonald and her colleagues identified brain functional abnormalities in children and adolescents six to 12 months after mild traumatic brain injuries. In the latest study, they will attempt to determine whether those abnormalities can be identified within a month of an injury and will then monitor the evolution of
