Soccer Heading: Women's Brains More Vulnerable than Men's to Injury

Women's brains are much more vulnerable than men's to injury from repeated soccer heading, according to a new study by researchers. The study found that regions of damaged brain tissue were five times more extensive in female soccer players than in males, suggesting that sex-specific guidelines may be warranted for preventing soccer-related head injuries. The results were published online today in Radiology.
