My research focuses on better understanding the long term effects of concussions in retired professional athletes, with the goal being to develop neuroimaging biomarkers that can help to identify impairments in athletes who have experienced repetitive concussions. To do this, I am using a comprehensive battery of cognitive, behavioral and neuropsychological measures, as well as state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques, to examine how repetitive concussions in sport affect neurocognitive processing during aging.
