Dr. Rebecca Ready on the Link Between CTE and Football

One of UMass Amherst Professor Dr. Rebecca Ready’s research specialties is sports-related concussions, which can cause Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. More commonly known as CTE, the degenerative brain disease was first discovered in football players. But, CTE can affect anyone with a history of repetitive brain trauma, like hockey players and military veterans. Dr. Ready joined Carrie Saldo to discuss her research.
