WJBD - Local Sports - Concussion Center Opening Later This Month

Concussion Center Opening Later This Month

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Concussion research will be one

of the primary functions of the Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior, which

opens later this month at the University of Nebraska.

The

center is housed in the new $55 million building attached to Memorial Stadium

that holds 38 luxury suites and an additional 6,000 seats for the football

stadium.

The

center is the latest university-affiliated research facilities looking for

better ways to diagnose and treat traumatic head injuries and make football and

other sports safer. Center director Dennis Molfese said one of the

projects is the development of a device that gives medical personnel the

ability to accurately assess the severity of a concussion right on the

sideline.
