BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The University at Buffalo has received a $2 million federal grant to study how concussions affect both the body and brain.

The five-year grant announced Tuesday comes from the National Institutes of Health.

UB researchers will recruit 90 teenagers who play a sport for a treadmill test and advanced brain imaging. The researchers will test their concept that the inability to exercise above a certain intensity is a marker for a concussion and also a predictor of recovery time.

The researchers say they are focusing on teens because they are the most vulnerable and take the longest time to recover.
