Combating concussions (8/31/2013)

There are millions of sports-related concussions each year, but many go undiagnosed because the fear of being benched often trumps the fear of permanent brain damage, and there is no objective test available to accurately diagnose concussions on the sidelines. Researchers at SDSU have set out to change that by developing software and an inexpensive balance board that can measure balance with 99 percent accuracy on the field and in the clinic. ...> Full Article


When is it safe for an athlete to return to play after a concussion? Consensus reports summarized (8/29/2013)

When is it safe for an athlete to return to play after a concussion? Consensus reports summarizedSeveral new or updated guidelines for managing sports concussions were released earlier this year, and their key areas of consensus, including recommendations for return to play, are presented in an article in Journal of Neurotrauma. ...> Full Article


Through 4 years' training, college football players gain strength and size (8/28/2013)

From freshman through senior year, college football players achieve significant increases in strength and size, reports a study in the September issue of The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, official research journal of the National Strength and Conditioning Association. The journal is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health. ...> Full Article


Study: Disease caused by repeat brain trauma in athletes may affect memory, mood, behavior (8/22/2013)

New research suggests that chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a brain disease associated with repeat brain trauma including concussions in athletes, may affect people in two major ways: Initially affecting behavior or mood or initially affecting memory and thinking abilities. ...> Full Article


Post-run ice baths not beneficial for strength, soreness (8/21/2013)

Post-run ice baths not beneficial for strength, sorenessIn a study published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology, University of New Hampshire researchers report that research subjects who engaged in post-exercise cryotheraphy, or ice baths, showed no mitigation of post-exercise strength loss or decreased soreness compared to a control group. ...> Full Article


The concussed brain at work: fMRI study documents brain activation during concussion recovery (8/20/2013)

For the first time, researchers have documented irregular brain activity within the first 24 hours of a concussive injury, as well as an increased level of brain activity weeks later -- suggesting that the brain may compensate for the injury during the recovery time. ...> Full Article


Researchers identify genetic root of mountain sickness (8/17/2013)

Exposure to low oxygen levels, such as those present at high altitudes, can wreak havoc on the body. Now researchers reporting Aug. 15 in the American Journal of Human Genetics, published by Cell Press, have uncovered genes that play a role in causing this damage, making them attractive targets for treatments against chronic mountain sickness and other conditions that involve oxygen deprivation. ...> Full Article


Watermelon juice relieves post-exercise muscle soreness (8/16/2013)

Watermelon juice's reputation among athletes is getting scientific support in a new study, which found that juice from the summer favorite fruit can relieve post-exercise muscle soreness. The report in ACS' Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry attributes watermelon's effects to the amino acid L-citrulline. ...> Full Article


Researchers use automated analysis to find weakness in soccer coaching strategy (8/14/2013)

Investigators at Disney Research, Pittsburgh, are applying artificial intelligence to the analysis of professional soccer and, in one application of the automated technique, have discovered a strategic error often made by coaches of visiting teams. ...> Full Article


Neurocognitive testing more accurate than self-reporting of cheerleaders' concussion recovery (8/9/2013)

In sports, cheerleading has the highest rate of catastrophic injury, with some studies reporting approximately six percent of total injuries as concussions. Return-to-play guidelines have relied on athletes' self-reports; however, this has led to concerns about the ability of athletes to truly recognize their own symptoms and recovery. In a new study scheduled for publication in The Journal of Pediatrics, researchers evaluate the accuracy of neurocognitive testing compared with self-reported symptoms of concussions in cheerleaders. ...> Full Article


Study casts doubt on theory that retired NFL players suffer unique cognitive disorder (8/8/2013)

The media have widely reported that retired NFL players are at risk for a neurodegenerative disorder called chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which causes symptoms such as aggression, depression, suicidality and progressive dementia. But a study of retired NFL players has found no evidence to support this theory. ...> Full Article
