Description

With growing neuroscientific research on sports concussions, states have revised their policies and statutes. Yet at present we have limited research on how these state sports concussion laws are working. This panel explored the intersection of neuroscience and law in the context of preventing, detecting, and treating youth sports concussions.

This event was free and open to the public.
