In a recent, revealing study published in JAMA at the end of July, 99% of deceased NFL players’ brains donated to scientific research showed signs of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, or CTE. It was found in 110 out of 111 former NFL players. As the surprisingly high numbers are shared with the public, many have questions about the causes of CTE, what the symptoms are, and if it can happen to more casual football players. On July 26th, 2017, Dr. Tarrel joined WCCO Radio to discuss these questions and study. If you missed it, you can listen to the interview below:
