UCLA and the NCAA are teaming up to tackle the problem of head injuries in college sports. The UCLA Brain Injury Research Center will be spearheading a group of doctors around the country in working on fixing the problems of brain injuries in college sports.To support UCLA's efforts, the NCAA is providing $400,000 for the study. The study will consist of over 1,000 athletes, both male and female, competing in both contact and non-contact sports. The study will hopefully lead to a better understanding of the cumulative effects of head injuries. The cumulative effects of head injuries, for example among NFL players, have been shown to lead to long-term brain degeneration.
