Chris Borland is an All-American linebacker, and an ex-professional football player. He garnered national attention when he retired from football early in his career because of concern to damaging his brain. Borland discusses the locker room culture that he experienced, and what clinicians need to understand about the minds of highly competitive athletes in order to develop better communication and treatments.

Relevant to the issues raised by Chris Borland, The Huffington Post reports how the National Football League attempted to influence the study on brain injuries, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), resulting from playing football. The issue was raised by Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.) based on a report obtained by ESPN’s "Outside the Lines."
NIH funds will support the work and determine who leads the project without outside influences.
