Title:The Affects of Concussions Across the Life-Span: Edmund J. James Scholar Program
Author(s):Ari Newton
Abstract:Our study compares concussed and non-concussed (control) brains across the life-span to see the difference between a young adult concussed brain and a young adult control brain, as well as an older adult concussed brain and an older adult control brain. We wanted to understand how concussions affect the brain, and how these effects change during the normal aging process. It is our hypothesis that concussions act as a catalyst for accelerated aging of the brain, and that as a person ages normally, the concussion causes the brain to use compensatory methods to function properly.
