Cohen's Brain Bits: Don't Hit Me with Your Best Shot

 – May 8, 2015  –– 

In this week's JAMA Pediatrics, a large epidemiologic study provides the first comprehensive analysis of concussion incidence in youth, high school, and collegiate football. With well over 200 teams and 10,000 players in the 2012 and 2013 seasons, the study evaluated the rates of concussion at each age level, the relative risk of concussion between different age groups, the setting in which concussions occurred (game versus practice), and the difference between the two seasons studied.
