Concussion Center Nebraska Football

In this May 31, 2013, photo, research assistant Kevin Real wears an EEG net for detecting brain activity which is hooked up to a monitor, at the University of Nebraska's Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior in Lincoln, Neb. The center, which opens this month in Memorial Stadium's newly expanded east side, is working on a project that would allow football players who took a hit to the head to slip on the electrode-covered mesh cap and have medical staff analyze the player's brain waves on the spot and determine within 10 minutes whether he can safely return to the game or whether he has sustained a concussion and, if so, how severe.

Concussion Center Nebraska Football

In this May 31, 2013, photo, Dennis Molfese, head of the University of Nebraska's Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior, looks over a functional MRI machine in Lincoln, Neb. It is being installed at the center which opens this month in Memorial Stadium's newly expanded east side in Lincoln, Neb. The $3 million scanner can track the brain's blood flow and is another tool that can further the medical community's attempt to identify a biomarker in the brain that defines what is and is not a concussion.
