No Guts, No Glory: What price does she pay to play the game?
The results showed gender differences in the reasons athletes reported they hid their concussions. In addition there were several other gender differences such as in frequency of non-sports concussions after athletes retired from sports. The results suggest that efforts to address concussion management in sport need to focus on the communicative and structural elements they contribute to shaping behavior that may prevent athletes from advocating for their health.

Differences in the Functional BNA™ of Concussed Male and Female Athletes
Differences in the Functional BNA™ of Concussed Male and Female Athletes
In the objective assessment of functional brain network changes following SRC, males and females showed notable differences, despite the fact that both populations were scored against the same normative reference brain activation network model. These results strongly suggest the need for sex-based biomarkers and assessment criteria. The BNA technology can bridge this gap by creating sex-based normative network biomarkers, and setting appropriate criteria.

Utilization of Brain Network Activation in the Concussed Female Athlete – A Case Report
Utilization of Brain Network Activation in the Concussed Female Athlete – A Case Report
Approach to concussion management, in both the short-term and long-term setting, remains primarily clinical. Current research seeks a more objective means of assessing not only potential structural abnormalities following a mild TBI, but also an improved means of assessing a patient’s neurocognitive status. BNA has proven to be an effective, supportive tool in allowing clinicians and patients to objectify one’s progress post head injury.

Ocular papillary changes on the caruncle surface in allergic conjunctivitis
Ocular papillary changes on the caruncle surface in allergic conjunctivitis
The caruncle is small, pink, globular nodule at the inner corner of the eye. We found the papillary changes of the caruncle corresponds to changes in palpebral conjunctiva seen in allergic conjunctivitis. There may indicate a greater inflammatory response in the caruncle resulting in greater itching in the nasal corners of the eye. Allergists can easily assess the caruncle.
