Three or more concussions over a lifetime can lead to cognitive problems later on in life, such as impaired concentration and executive function, an Australian-led study suggests.

UNSW Sydney researchers analysed data from nearly 16,000 people in the UK and found traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) were linked to worse cognitive function in those older than 50.
