The players who participated are portion of the DETECT study, funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health. DETECT recruited retired NFL players who played for at least two years professionally. They were between 40 and 65 years old. Using a special type of MRI, the investigators centered on connections in the corpus callosum, the region of the brain that bridges both brain halves, the researchers explained. These connections were less intact in the NFL players who began their tackle soccer careers before age 12, the researchers found.
