CARE Consortium researchers from around the country are publishing scientific papers from data gathered in the CARE Consortium in peer-reviewed medical journals. Among other topics, these papers initially will focus on:

  • The acute effects of concussion and repetitive head impact exposure;
  • Analysis of head impact forces;
  • Advanced brain imaging techniques;
  • Genetics and blood biomarkers and their relationship to brain injury;
  • And clinical and neurobiological recovery times.

While each study’s findings are focused on a specific subject, and all reflect emerging information, taken together, the papers paint an early but comprehensive portrait of the cause and effects of acute concussion and repetitive head impact exposure. This page will be updated frequently with the latest findings.
