Hey friends! Thank you to the few residents who attended the LAE faculty forum with me on concussion injuries in football presented by Dr. Matthew Rogatzki and Dr. Richard Dhyanchand. It was a great oppertunity to learn about the studies that Dr. Rogatzki has been working on at UW-Platteville since 2015! He has had junior varsity football athletes on campus participate in his studies in an effort to help create a more efficient way to determine when a football player recieves a concussion while on the field in order to prevent further damage if they do happen to sustain these head injuries. He has made great strides in his effort to help with earlier determination of this blunt force head trauma injury. There is still a long way to go with his research, but he hopes to continue to search for the answer. Dr. Dhyanchand helped us to understand the cause of concussions and what affect they have on the brain and nervous systems in the body. I hope this was useful to those of you currently in biology or anatomy courses and gave you a better understanding of this topic.
