Join the director of the NFL’s concussion study, Dr. David Okonkwo of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and nine-year NFL veteran Chris Carr discussing what to do if you suspect a concussion on or off the field of play. Concussion—not just a headache for pro football players, in this episode of the Brain Injury Awareness Project podcast, hosted by Erin Mattingly, chair of Northern Virginia’s Brain Injury Services.

Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor joins host Erin Mattingly for a conversation about untangling the right-brain/left-brain myth, reframing how we think about brain hemisphere function, and how her neuroscience expertise shaped her own brain injury recovery experience.
