Brain Images from UB's Healthy Aging Mind Project (image) University at Buffalo Share Print E-Mail Caption This image shows the overall brain structure of two individuals in the study while the brain on the right is from an individual with dementia, included for comparison. Neither the brain from the athlete who participated in contact sports nor the brain from the non-contact sports athlete has enlarged ventricles or atrophied hippocampus, both of which have been associated with dementia. All scans were acquired on the 3Tesla GE magnet.
