NSAC Joins Brain Study

Via mmafighting.com

Perhaps the most important long-term development, though, came through an agreement the commission reached with the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, in conjuction with the Cleveland Clinic, to conduct free testing for mixed martial artists and boxers.


The two medical centers will partner for a "five-to-10-year" project that is designed to advance the study of brain trauma, concussive injury and neurological health among athletes. Fighters would receive annual physicals, including brain scans, to aid in the collection of data.

Fighter participation will be voluntary for the study, the cost of which is covered by outside funding.

Pretty relevant to some of the stuff we've been talking about lately.
