Digital Discovery: Sports-related injuries to the brain
Dr Helen Murray has recently been funded by a Health Education Trust fellowship for her latest research using novel tissue-labelling techniques to study the brains of former athletes donated to the Sports Brain Bank Initiative, a new part of the Neurological Foundation Human Brain Bank. As a New Zealand representative in ice hockey, she has a keen interest in understanding the neuropathology associated with repetitive sport-related concussion. Helen will be introducing the audience to the work being conducted at the new arm of the Neurological Foundation Human Brain Bank dedicated to sports, as well as how her work will help uncover information about sports-related injuries to the brain such as concussion.
