UNL was featured in LiveB1G, a Big Ten Network program that aired after the Feb. 12 Illinois at Nebraska men’s basketball game. The program repeats at 11:45 p.m. Feb. 16 and 10:30 p.m. Feb. 26.
The episode features the College of Journalism and Mass Communications’ Global Eyewitness program and UNL’s collaboration between the Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior (CB3) and Athletic Performance Laboratory.
The Global Eyewitness program sends groups of undergraduates to developing countries. The students document the journeys and develop presentations showcased after returning to Lincoln.
The CB3 and Athletic Performance Lab are working together to discover new ways concussions in athletes are detected in real time, specifically on sidelines during games.
In addition, the BTN broadcast showcases UNL’s Trauma Mechanics Research Initiative — which is working to reduce traumatic brain injuries in soldiers — and the Target Bullying Intervention program. Tim Miles, the Husker men’s basketball coach, also discusses in the LiveB1G episode why it is important for athletes to get out in the community and give back.
