Troubled testing: UWindsor prof warns concussion testing for young athletes may be flawed

Many young athletes who have suffered a concussion may be at risk of returning to play too early because of invalid baseline testing, warns a University of Windsor professor.

Psychology associate professor Chris Abeare recently completed a study of 7,897 athletes between 10 and 21-years-old and found that 55.7 per cent failed at least one of four validity measures, suggesting that their baseline test scores are lower than their actual cognitive ability.

Lancer sport centre will bridge University and Windsor communities

The future Lancer Sport and Recreation Centre will provide a cutting-edge facility that brings together University of Windsor students, academics, and the community.

"The Lancer Sport and Recreation Centre (LSRC) will completely transform the student experience at the University of Windsor," said Michael Khan, dean of the Faculty of Human Kinetics. "The facility will allow the Lancer family to be immersed in community groups, students will have more opportunities to be physically active and our researchers will be able to gain experiential learning thanks to the new LSRC."

UWindsor history project earns Ontario Heritage Award

There were no easy games for the Chatham Coloured All-Stars.

It's what Wilfred "Boomer" Harding recalled decades after his team was forced to overcome adversity both on and off the baseball diamond to become champions of the Ontario Baseball Amateur Association's Intermediate B-1 class in 1934.

That road to the championship game was onerous.

The Black baseball team travelled across the province to compete in games, often being denied accommodations and forced to continue driving in precarious conditions before eventually reaching a welcome refuge.

Professor blurs the lines between art and science

Jennifer Willet's art may evoke mixed feelings. And that's the point.

The associate professor at the University of Windsor specializes in bioart, a form of art that fuses scientific processes and materials in a gallery setting.

"It most often involves living, sometimes recently deceased biological material," Dr. Willet explained. "One of the things that really differentiates bioart from other art forms is the bioethics of the media are intrinsically present in the work of the artist and the viewer."
