Link between concussion in sport & CTE explained by Professor Michael Buckland, Sportzfan Radio #482

Special guest, Professor Michael Buckland, Head of Neuropathology at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and the founder and Director of the Australian Sports Brain Bank talks about the effects of concussion on the brain and the link to CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy). Amongst other things he said it’s not just the number of concussions sustained that is relevant but the number of years of contact sport played that is also pertinent to developing CTE. Therefore, it’s important to try and delay the age at which a child has first exposure to full contact sport. For further details about CTE go to brainbank.org.au
