Anybody who watches a fair amount of sports is used to the concept of concussion. It's bad enough when adults get their brains rattled; it can derail a life plan for a young person working to get through school.
So the University of Oregon's Center for Brain Injury Research and Training (CBIRT) started a project to help teachers help students with brain injuries. We learn about the project from CBIRT Director Ann Glang and Project Coordinator Melissa McCart in this month's edition of Curious: Research Meets Radio, our joint venture with UO.
We explore the difference between a normal brain and an injured brain.
