The Football Concussion Crisis

Last night’s PBS Frontline episode, “League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussion Crisis,” explored how football concussions affect the brain.

Researchers must continue to explore how playing football affects the brain, Peter Davies, PhD, told the program producers. An investigator at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, Dr. Davies raised important questions that still need to be resolved:

  • Will everyone experience brain disease if they sustain enough brain trauma?
  • How many brain traumas must be sustained to develop brain disease?
