Many athletes and their families are concerned about the long term implications of repetitive head trauma or concussions sustained in contact sports. This concern is amplified by research on professional athletes that has received widespread media attention.
A fuller understanding of these effects requires comprehensive assessment of cognitive, psychological, and neurological function. The purpose of this study is to apply state-of-the-art measures of these functions to understand brain aging in university and professional alumni hockey players and matched comparison subjects without a history of exposure to high-level contact sports.
