The Concussion Project

Game-changing research

Researchers at Western University are changing the way to identify, treat and prevent concussions.

Dr. Arthur Brown and his team are working on therapeutic interventions to treat concussion when it happens, and prevent the damage that causes long-term negative effects.

Their research has shown that the progressive damage from concussion happens as a result of the ongoing inflammatory process initiated with the original impact. The good news is that they have identified strategies that stop this damage, which is driven by inflammation. The strategies also regenerate nerve growth and improve long-term outcomes.

Protecting our future

This research is important and the outcomes mean we will not be powerless in the face of concussion. We will be one step closer to finding a treatment.

Help reshape the future of concussion research and care
