UO brain research cited in guest commentary on concussions

The work of UO researchers on the effects of sports-related concussions was cited in a weekend guest opinion article in The Register-Guard.

The article, by sports medicine physician Michael Koester of the Slocum Center for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, noted that the UO’s Center on Brain Injury Research and Training is a great resource for concussion information. The information is available at the center’s website.

Koester says that the center’s research and training works “to improve the lives of children and adults with traumatic brain injury and promotes best practices for educators and others who serve individuals” with traumatic brain injury. The story appeared in the newspaper’s Sunday, Sept. 7, issue.
