Professor John Sullivan
In this lecture Professor Sullivan will discuss his research which investigates rugby players who have sustained concussions throughout their career. Comparisons are made relating to elevated risks of depression and/or mild cognitive impairment later in life, compared to matched non-rugby players, and whether any deficits are associated with the number of concussions.
This will inform recommendations for the monitoring and management of the concussed player, along with enhancing the understanding of brain health for retired sportspersons.
