Rough
sports =
long-term
problems?

align="left">The
new season of
Emerging
Science
continues
with a look at
the growing
incidence of
traumatic
brain injuries
(TBI) among
athletes. Ann
McKee, M.D.,
is chief
neuropathologist
for the New
England
Veteran’s
Administration.
Her
groundbreaking
research
focuses on
Chronic
Traumatic
Encephalopathy
(CTE), a
degenerative
disease of the
brain found in
people with a
history of
repetitive
brain trauma,
such as
concussions.
