Are you a person who plays competitive football or other contact sport? Would you be interested in helping us understand the consequences of concussion?

We are conducting a study to investigate the effect of concussion on the brain using MRI scans, cognitive testing, and biomarkers. Our goal is to develop methods that can better detect and monitor concussion.

We need volunteers to participate. Participation in the study may involve all or a combination of the following: MRI scans, cognitive testing, provision of blood and saliva samples and use of an actigraph (sleep and movement wristwatch monitor).

Who?

  • You are aged between 18 and 40 years
  • You are healthy and have no history of neurological symptoms or severe concussions that have led to unconsciousness for more than 30 minutes
  • You play competitive contact sports in Brisbane

Where?

The University of Queensland, Center for Advanced Imaging, building 57

Will I get paid?

You will receive $50 for travel expenses for participation in all aspects of the study.

How will my data be used?

Your data will be anonymised. You will receive an image of your brain.
