INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The NCAA has awarded a $399,999 grant to fund a study into the long-term effects of head injuries in college sports.

Kevin Guskiewicz of North Carolina's Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center and Michael McCrea of the Medical College of Wisconsin will conduct the research. They hope to add data to the recent scrutiny of concussions and other head injuries by examining former college athletes who have participated in previous studies.

They plan to build on the information they collected during a 1999 study that also was conducted for the NCAA.
