Researchers build computer models to analyze play in pro basketball and soccer (12/18/2014)

With the ball at the three-point line near the top of the key, what will Tim Duncan of the NBA's San Antonio Spurs do? Pass to a player posting up? Or does he take a shot? An analysis by Disney Research of player tracking data, however, suggests the highest probability is a pass to guard Tony Parker on his left. ...> Full Article


A new way to diagnose brain damage from concussions, strokes and dementia (12/16/2014)

A new way to diagnose brain damage from concussions, strokes and dementiaNew optical diagnostic technology developed at Tufts University School of Engineering promises new ways to identify and monitor brain damage resulting from traumatic injury, stroke or vascular dementia -- in real time and without invasive procedures. ...> Full Article


Light-based technology tracks oxygen levels underwater for swim performance, muscle repair (12/14/2014)

A research article published today describes a new light-based technology for measuring oxygen content in muscles while underwater, valuable information for competitive swimmers as well as patients using water-based therapies to recover from muscle injuries. Authored by researchers from the University of Essex and Artinis Medical Systems, the open-access paper appears in the current issue of the Journal of Biomedical Optics, published by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics. ...> Full Article

Do concussions have lingering cognitive, physical, and emotional effects? (12/7/2014)

Do concussions have lingering cognitive, physical, and emotional effects?A study of active duty US Marines who suffered a recent or previous concussion(s) examined whether persistent post-concussive symptoms and lingering effects on cognitive function are due to concussion-related brain trauma or emotional distress. The results are different for a recent concussion compared to a history of multiple concussions, according to the study published in Journal of Neurotrauma. ...> Full Article


WHACK! Study measures head blows in girls' lacrosse (12/6/2014)

WHACK! Study measures head blows in girls' lacrosseAs debate increases about whether female lacrosse players should wear headgear, a new study reports measurements of the accelerations that stick blows deliver to the head. The study also measured the dampening effect of various kinds of headgear. ...> Full Article


Athletes perform better when exposed to subliminal visual cues (12/5/2014)

New research from the University of Kent has found that athletes who are exposed to subliminal visual cues when they are participating in endurance exercise will perform significantly better. ...> Full Article


High school football players show brain changes after one season (12/4/2014)

High school football players show brain changes after one seasonSome high school football players exhibit measurable brain changes after a single season of play even in the absence of concussion, according to a new study. ...> Full Article


Researchers identify protein that predicts post-concussion severity in professional athletes (11/29/2014)

New Penn Medicine research has found that elevated levels in the blood of the brain-enriched protein calpain-cleaved αII-spectrin N-terminal fragment, known as SNTF, shortly after sports-related concussion can predict the severity of post-concussion symptoms in professional athletes. The complete findings were released today in the Journal of Neurotrauma. ...> Full Article


Athletes' testosterone surges not tied to winning, study finds (11/28/2014)

A higher surge of testosterone in competition, the so-called 'winner effect,' is not actually related to winning, suggests a new study of intercollegiate cross country runners. ...> Full Article


The American athletics track is still a man's world (11/22/2014)

The limited coverage that American female athletes get in the media is one of many subtle forms of gender biases they have to cope with. The little exposure they do get often focuses more on their attire, or how attractive, sexy or ladylike they are than on their actual athletic prowess. In the long run, this influences their performance in sports. So say the authors of a review published in Springer's journal Sex Roles. ...> Full Article

Why is tiny Jamaica home to so many elite sprinters? Robert Trivers thinks it may all be in the knees. ...> Full Article


Danger of repeat head injuries: Brain's inability to tap energy source (11/20/2014)

Two or more serious hits to the head within days of each other can interfere with the brain's ability to use sugar -- its primary energy source -- to repair cells damaged by the injuries, new research suggests. ...> Full Article


Do spinal cord injuries cause subsequent brain damage? (11/18/2014)

University of Maryland School of Medicine researchers have found for the first time that spinal cord injuries can cause widespread and sustained brain inflammation that leads to progressive loss of nerve cells, with associated cognitive problems and depression. ...> Full Article


Enriched environments hold promise for brain injury patients (11/17/2014)

A violent blow to the head has the potential to cause mild to severe traumatic brain injury -- physical damage to the brain that can be debilitating, even fatal. But to date, there is no effective medical or cognitive treatment for patients with traumatic brain injuries. Now a new study from Tel Aviv University researchers points to an 'enriched environment' -- specially enhanced surroundings -- as a promising path for the rehabilitation of mild traumatic brain injury patients. ...> Full Article
