NEW YORK (AP) — A brain-scanning technique might one day help identify people with a disease linked to concussions in football and other sports, an illness now diagnosed only after death, a small study suggests.
A summit this week at the White House put a spotlight on the issue of concussions within youth sports and the fact that there's not enough information on how these brain injuries affect kids later in life.
Legislation for federal funding to help protect student athletes from concussions got the National Football League's backing Monday in the shadow of the stadium where the Super Bowl will be played this weekend.
The NFL agreed to pay more than three-quarters of a billion dollars to settle lawsuits from thousands of former players who developed dementia or other concussion-related health problems they say were caused by the very on-field violence that fueled the game's rise to popularity and profit.
