Study: Years of prep football not linked to neurocognitive decline

Science Daily reported on a study by Tulane researchers who followed more than 1,000 high school football players over several years and found those who did not suffer a concussion remained in good cognitive health years later

The study, which also appeared on, warned these findings do not diminish the need for schools to do more to prevent concussions diagnosed to football players.
