The National Football League and General Electric are awarding a $300,000 grant to the Medical College of Wisconsin.

The NFL announced the grant  on a news release on its nflrevolution.com site.

It says that MCW earned the grant for work researchers will do "to determine the direct effects of sport-related concussions on brain structure and function."

Their research will involve better concussion diagnosis methods and finding out when athletes are fully recovered and able to play.
