    The National Football League has placed its strictest rules yet on managing concussions. What is the medical profession to make of such a policy and what are its broader implications for players' long-term health and for future medical research? Dr. Julian Bailes is a founding member of the Brain Injury Research Institute, which is affiliated with the Blanchette Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute at West Virginia University and possesses a brain and tissue bank that houses 20 brains for future research. He is also professor and chairman of the department of neurosurgery at West Virginia University School of Medicine.
