The Big Ten Conference and its Committee on Institutional Cooperation have teamed with the Ivy League to study head injuries in sports. The Big Ten was the first collegiate conference to establish a conference-wide concussion management plan in 2010, and joined forces with the Ivy League in 2012. UNL psychology professor Dennis Molfese leads the Big Ten/CIC Traumatic Brain Injury Research Collaboration. “The opportunity for collaborating on such a landmark series of studies with the Ivy League is unprecedented in sports medicine,” he said. Molfese, the Mildred Francis Thompson Professor of Psychology, also heads UNL’s proposed Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior, a multidisciplinary brain imaging center and research collaboration.
