Does brain function in Olympic male amateur boxers change in relation to head impact force measured during competition sparring?

A / Prof Kohler is conducting a pilot study on Olympic male amateur boxers at the Australian Institute of Sport. Axon Sport measures brain function before and after 2 separate competition sparring bouts on 2 separate days. Each boxer has an accelerometer attached inside their headgear. The G force of every landing punch to the boxer is measured in each sparring session. Results are currently being analysed.
