Learning to see better in life and baseball (2/21/2014)

With a little practice on a computer or iPad -- 25 minutes a day, 4 days a week, for 2 months -- our brains can learn to see better, according to a study of University of California, Riverside baseball players reported in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on February 17. The new evidence also shows that a visual training program can sometimes make the difference between winning and losing. ...> Full Article


How well do football helmets protect players from concussions? (2/20/2014)

A new study finds that football helmets currently used on the field may do little to protect against hits to the side of the head, or rotational force, an often dangerous source of brain injury and encephalopathy. The study released today will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology's 66th Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, April 26-May 3, 2014. ...> Full Article

Probe could help determine severity of rotator-cuff injuries (2/2/2014)

A new ultrasound probe that has been developed at Clemson University could take some of the guesswork out of determining the severity of rotator-cuff injuries, making it easier for doctors to decide whether patients need surgery. David M. Kwartowitz is leading a team that has been working on a probe that provides tissue measurements down to the millimeter. The device is harmless, and he expects it will be inexpensive enough for just about any doctor to buy. ...> Full Article
