Warren Sapp to donate his brain to concussion research
Since being elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on the first ballot four years ago, Warren Sapp has traveled each August to Canton, Ohio, to join the game's greats returning for induction ceremonies. But with each passing year, it seemed too many of his fellow NFL players were in failing health and slipping further into a fog as a result of head injuries sustained during their careers."I said, 'I can't do this. I can't stay on the sideline and watch Tony Dorsett and Willie Brown and all the great ones deteriorate before my eyes,' " Sapp told the Tampa Bay Times.

The Congressional Brain Injury Task Force's Briefing on Female Concussion and TBI
Created by Katherine Snedaker, Executive Director of PINK Concussions, to capture "the spirit" of the briefing, share lessons learned, provide scientific references, and inspire further conversations. This is not an official report but rather a summary of Katherine's experience leading up to the event, her tweets from the event, photos taken by PINK concussion interns and references submitted by the speakers to PINK Concussions.

Disrupted Brain Pathway, Altered Stress Hormones Key to TBI Impact Differences in Men, Women
The brains of men and women are wired differently, and when it comes to traumatic brain injuries (TBI), women are more likely to develop subsequent neuropsychiatric disorders, like anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Until now, it’s been unclear why that is, but a new study by researchers at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) provides that missing link – a potentially disrupted pathway in the brain.

Childhood Brain Injury Tied to Adult Anxiety, Depression
Children who sustained traumatic brain injuries may experience psychological effects like anxiety, phobias and depression more than a decade later, researcher at Monash University School of Psychological Sciences in Melbourne, Australia. “The study suggests that brain injury is in some way related to longer-term anxiety symptoms, while previously it was thought that brain injury only leads to short-term effects,” said lead author Michelle Albicini.

The Real Trouble With Brady’s Undisclosed Concussion
Maybe his wife is mistaken, or maybe the Patriots kept it under wraps, but if the NFL’s biggest star was unwilling to self-report symptoms it’s a much bigger issue for the league. Plus, the good and the bad of the Eagles signing Blount, and a sneaky good roster in L.A.

Miami Dolphins Nick Buoniconti shines light on CTE
Nick Buoniconti was a linebacker in the NFL for 14 years. He estimates that during that time he absorbed a whopping 520,000 hits. Buoniconti recently revealed that he is likely suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, more commonly known as CTE — the scourge that has plagued veteran football players who made a living as human battering rams, and who received the blows as we watched and cheered.
