Head Injuries To Be Studied

Cutting-edge research could lead to breakthroughs in the treatment of concussions…as well as a range of brain injuries in the renovated East Stadium on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus. Psychologist Dennis Molfese is director of the Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior, an unprecedented partnership between Nebraska athletics and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln academics located in 28-Thousand square feet of the renovated East Memorial Stadium. . .

Concussion research is the cornerstone of the center’s work. . .

It does focus on athletes, but the center’s research could benefit any of the nearly two million Americans who suffer brain injuries every year.
