The National Institutes of Health outlined Monday how it planned to use part of a $30 million grant from the N.F.L. to finance a series of research projects designed to answer some of the most vexing questions about how and why athletes sustain traumatic brain injuries. A team of doctors led by Dr. Jeffrey Ojemann of Seattle Children’s, which has an active program to evaluate young athletes who receive concussions, will give magnetic resonance imaging tests to at least 10 high school students who receive concussions for the first time to see if they have elevated levels of the chemical.
