Accident-prone? Scientists link brain function to knee injuries
...possible only if the word red was displayed on the computer
screen in a red color, not if the word appeared in the color green or blue. After the season started, a number of the tested athletes ended up sustaining noncontact ACL injuries. These athletes were identified, and 80 of them were matched up to a c...
