In episode 9 of Concussion Talk Podcast I talk to Alex Rebchuk and Harrison Brown, two graduate students atÂ UBC (University of British Columbia) School of Kinesiology. With the enthusiastic participation of the UBC Thunderbirds Football team,Â the funding and support ofÂ Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation, MEA Forensic Engineer and Scientists, UBC School of Kinesiology, and using a small device called an xPatch, Alex and Harrison have been researching the link between a playerâ€™s brain function and the number, and magnitude, of hits sustained.
The UBC Thunderbirds are playing in this Saturday’s Vanier Cup! Alex and Harrison are with the team in Quebec City, but have kindly joined me for this podcast and will talk about their research!
