I really enjoy reading your blog and find it helps educate me advancements in research around the country for head trauma victims. I'm not sure if you are aware, but the University of Chicago has been running clinicals on high-school age athletes that have suffered from concussions to determine the long-lasting effects. This is in part because of the donation this past winter of Super Bowl winning ex-Bear's player Dave Duerson donating his brain for research.
Thanks for the important information which I always find useful in my own practice.
