CARE Consortium: Baseline performance among U.S. service academy members

The NCAA-Department of Defense study evaluates college athletes and military cadets alike, and interrogating baseline concussion assessment data from both groups is essential.

CARE Consortium: Cerebral blood flow in acute concussion

While researchers have learned a great deal about concussion in recent decades, what occurs in the brain at the time of injury and through the course of recovery are not yet fully understood.

CARE Consortium: Influence of self-reported fatigue and gender on concussion baseline scores

A litany of factors — testing environment, testing group size and mental health history, plus others — can affect the results of baseline concussion tests. But what role does fatigue play, if any?

CARE Consortium: Estimated age at first exposure to football and neurocognitive performance

Previous studies have found that repetitive head impacts to athletes during adolescence can have potentially detrimental effects much later in life. But what short-term effects might that early-life exposure have?

CARE Consortium: King-Devick test time varies by testing modality

The test, a timed exam that requires participants to identify and name numbers rapidly in order to gauge eye movement and reaction time, has become an important tool for clinicians evaluating concussions.

CARE Consortium: Comparison of head impact exposure between concussed football athletes and matched controls

While the understanding of sport-related concussion and its short- and long-term consequences has continued apace, what role might exposure to repetitive head impacts play in brain health and vulnerability to injury?

CARE Consortium: How mental health and concussion history influence baseline performance

No two student-athletes are the same, but what factors influence the baseline results that clinicians use to help diagnose concussions and evaluate recovery after injury?

The Derek Sheely Conference

This conference is held in honor of Derek Sheely, who died from a traumatic brain injury sustained during football practice in 2011. This public event is to inform and engage coaches, athletic trainers, other sports medicine personnel,...

NCAA Injury Surveillance Program Data Requests

For nearly 10 years, the NCAA has supported the Datalys Injury Statistics Clearinghouse, a scientific program that provides de-identified injury surveillance data to researchers affiliated with academic institutions. This program has...
