Irish Concussion Research Centre (ICRC)
The Irish Concussion Research Centre (ICRC) is part of the School of Science and Computing at ATU's Dublin Road, Galway campus.
At the ICRC, our staff and research students are working to:
- Develop education and awareness programmes which offer a more comprehensive understanding of concussion, mTBI and CTE
- Deliver concussion management and recovery methodologies (e.g. neuroscience) by examining concussion risk reduction measures across sports
- Influence participants in sport at all levels, from amateur to elite, and those who manage sports activity, such as coaches, medics, parents, and administrators
A priority area for the ICRC is developing concussion management and education strategies.
These strategies will enhance the treatment of each individual who experiences a concussion through sport or recreational activity.
