CB3’s research is highly diverse, ranging from brain injuries and other cognitive impairments to the heritability of social attitudes and the neurological basis of decision-making. Concussion research is a cornerstone of the center’s work. UNL researchers are studying how the brain functions and processes information before and after concussions. They’re focusing on athletes but this research could improve treatment for the 1.7 million Americans who suffer traumatic brain injuries annually.
