SYDNEY adidas pharrell kengät , July 4 (Xinhua) -- Researchers at the University of Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) have begun to work with athletes in order to uncover the medical mysteries that surround concussion in elite sport, it has been announced Tuesday.


The ground breaking study is the first of its kind and will examine pre- and post- concussion in the same individuals.


"This will allow us to detect more subtle changes than other studies that have compared concussion subjects with normal healthy subjects," senior research fellow at the University of Queensland, Dr Fatimah Nasrallah told Xinhua Tuesday.


The study will use MRI imaging combined with blood and saliva testing over regular intervals.


Scientists will then measure these biomarkers alongside physiological and cognitive assessments.


"Our aim is to find out what's happening at the level of the brain and then try to correlate that with the changes that are happening with the markers in the saliva and the blood," Nasrallah said.


"We will also be examining their sleeping patterns adidas superstar 2 punainen , because sleep is known to be affected after concussion, which should give us a more accurate assessment of how long the effects of a concussion last."


The issue has been a very hot button topic in Australia over recent years, as a number of medical professionals have criticised the nation's sporting codes, such as those of Rugby, Boxing and AFL for not doing enough to protect players from long-term head injuries.


QBI director Professor Pankaj Sah said adidas superstar 2 musta , "We're not trying to change sport; we're trying to change outcomes."


"Understanding more about concussion and recognising the appropriate timeframe to be excluded from sport to prevent further injury to the brain will help keep the community involved in sport and protect player well-being."


Adding that the long term side effects seen from repeated concussion seen in sport can include dementia at a much earlier age.


In 2016, QBI launched a campaign tagged #nobrainnogame, in order to tackle the issue and raise awareness of the dangers of head injuries in sport.


Due to its success, Australia's major sporting codes adopted new procedures when dealing with players who had experienced head trauma.


The campaign received backing by a number of high profile athletes, including AFL Brisbane Lions defender Justin Clarke adidas superstar 2 sininen , who was forced to retire at 22, after experiencing a severe, "career-ending" concussion.


Nasrallah believes that because there's not been a great deal of studies conducted on concussion in sport prior to recently, players with mild concussion didn't seem to take it "too seriously."


"If you get a head knock, a lot of people in sports ignore it and think it will go away in time adidas superstar 2 valkoinen , I think now sporting clubs and members are becoming more aware of the issue," Nasrallah said.


But even with the new precautions that codes have brought in to examine whether a player should continue after a head injury, Nasrallah warns, "while they think they may be implementing sufficient guidelines in regard to their players safety, I don't think we have the proper tests that can access whether you have had damage from a concussion or not.

Liverpool slipped from first to fourth in the Premier League after losing 2-1 at Manchester City on Thursday, leaving Arsenal in first place following a frantic Boxing Day programme.


Brendan Rodgers's Liverpool started the day in first place and they made an impressive start at the Etihad Stadium, with Philippe Coutinho giving the visitors a 24th-minute lead after a neat team move.


However, City captain Vincent Kompany headed home an equaliser seven minutes later and Alvaro Negredo put the hosts in front on the stroke of half-time with a tame shot that Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet could only palm into the net.


"The most important thing today was that we were losing 1-0 but we had the character and the trust to go for the win and we continued trying to attack adidas superstar slip on suomi ," said City manager Manuel Pellegrini.


"I think it was very important to try to finish the year near the top of the table."


City, who have now won all nine of their home games this season, climb to second place, a point behind Arsenal, while Liverpool adidas superstar foundation suomi , for whom Raheem Sterling spurned a fine second-half chance, are three points off the pace.


"We're all very proud of the team tonight," said Liverpool manager Rodgers.


"I thought how we played -- the charisma in our football, and the passing in our game -- was exceptional.


"We're bitterly disappointed not to win the game, but my overriding feeling is one of pride adidas originals kengät ale , because it was an outstanding performance."


Earlier, Theo Walcott had scored twice as Arsenal came from behind to win 3-1 against West Ham United at Upton Park.


Arsenal spurned several first-half chances and they were punished early in the second period when Carlton Cole put the hosts in front after Wojciech Szczesny spilled a shot from Kevin Nolan.


However, Walcott struck twice in three minutes to turn the game around, before Lukas Podolski crowned his comeback from a hamstring injury with a low strike in the 79th minute.


"We couldn't take our chances in the first half and we responded very well in the second half, in the end winning the game in a convincing way adidas originals kengät suomi ," said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.


"I am proud of the character of this team because they are always focus.
