Last quote by Ann McKee

In this age group, he's clearly at the severe end of the spectrum. There is a concern that we're seeing accelerated disease in young athletes. Whether or not that's because they're playing more aggressively or if they're starting at younger ages, we don't know. But we are seeing ravages of this disease, in this specific example, of a young person.feedback

It's not a systematic study, but just anecdotally looking at the players that have come into our brain bank compared to the football players, in general I think the hockey players have less CTE or a milder CTE.

I think it has been more prevalent in football, for instance, because you have 350-pound linemen who are facing off [against] each other and going full speed, and as they stop together, the brain keeps going. Our sport is different, and we do have our issues that we have to address, for sure; but in our circles, it hasn't been a prevalent conversation. I played 16 years, I worked with the NHLPA, and it's not a conversation I've had with any regularity.feedback

Even though he was only 27, he played 16 years of football, and we're finding over and over that it's the duration of exposure to football that gives you a high risk for C.T.E. Certainly, 16 years is a high exposure.feedback

A family is much more likely to donate if they're concerned about their loved one – if they're exhibiting symptoms or signs that are concerning them, or if they died accidentally or especially if they committed suicide. It skews for accidental deaths, suicide and individuals with disabling or discomforting symptoms.feedback

It's not an inert study. This is a very large resource that will advance research in many directions. . . . The whole point is to advance and accelerate our knowledge of CTE in order to aid the living people who are at risk for it or who have it.feedback
