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


Symmetrical knees linked to Jamaican sprinting prowess (11/21/2014)

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


Research team scores with 'The Concussion Playbook' (11/13/2014)

Research team scores with 'The Concussion Playbook'Recognize. Report. Respond. Rest. A University of Oregon researcher stresses those 'R' words in an online educational tool designed to teach coaches, educators, teens and parents about concussions. ...> Full Article


Arm pain in young baseball players is common, preventable (11/12/2014)

The most in-depth survey of its kind found that arm pain is common among supposedly healthy young baseball players and nearly half have been encouraged to keep playing despite arm pain. The findings suggest that more detailed and individualized screening is needed to prevent overuse injury in young ballplayers. ...> Full Article


Running robots of future may learn from world's best 2-legged runners: Birds (11/11/2014)

Running robots of future may learn from world's best 2-legged runners: BirdsWith an eye toward making better running robots, researchers have made surprising new findings about some of nature's most energy efficient bipeds -- running birds. Their skills may have evolved from the time of the dinosaurs and they may now be superior to any other bipedal runners -- including humans. ...> Full Article


ECG on the run: Continuous ECG surveillance of marathon athletes is feasible (11/10/2014)

The condition of an athlete's heart has for the first time been accurately monitored throughout the duration of a marathon race. The real-time monitoring was achieved by continuous electrocardiogram (ECG) surveillance and data transfer over the public mobile phone network to a telemedicine center along the marathon route. This new development in cardiac testing in endurance athletes, said investigators, 'would allow instantaneous diagnosis of potentially fatal rhythm disorders.' ...> Full Article


The best sensory experience for learning a dance sequence (11/9/2014)

The best sensory experience for learning a dance sequenceHow can a sequence of dance steps best be learned? This question was the subject of a project led by researchers from Bielefeld University and the Palucca University of Dance in Dresden, who developed the study along with dancers and dance instructors. Together they researched whether dancers learn a dance sequence better by seeing or by listening, that is, if a dance instructor first demonstrates the sequence, or if he or she first gives a spoken explanation. ...> Full Article


Are 'flops' a success in basketball? (11/8/2014)

'The defender improves his chances of drawing an offensive foul to some extent by falling intentionally vs. standing,' Morgulev explains. 'However professional players and coaches should be expected to make a broader assessment of their decisions and refrain form myopic thinking that flops are the right course of action.' With the 2014 NBA season starting next week, Morgulev believes that flopping should receive a more significant fine or punishment. ...> Full Article


Smarter, quicker-thinking referees? There's an app for that! (11/3/2014)

KU Leuven and UEFA, European football's governing body, have embarked on a four-year project to expand and fine-tune a web-based skills training platform for referees. Early results show that the application can improve assistant referees' on-field perception and decision-making by up to 25 percent. ...> Full Article


Insightful mathematics for an optimal run (11/2/2014)

Sure, we can become better runners by hydrating well, eating right, cross training, and practice. But getting to an optimal running strategy with equations? That's exactly what a pair of mathematicians from France propose in a paper published this month in the SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics. ...> Full Article
