Soccer Star Brandi Chastain to Donate Brain to Science

Hoping to help scientists better understand the effects of repeated head trauma, US soccer star Brandi Chastain has stated she will donate her brain to science.

“Hopefully, what can be learned is, can doctors and scientists and neuroscientists look at the brain of someone like me, who has been playing soccer a majority of my life, and really dissect the brain and say, ‘Here’s where we see it beginning?’ Could we then use that information to help say that before the age of 14, it’s not a good idea to head the ball?'” Chastain told USA Today.
