Traumatic brain injury has been reported in professional
combat athlete population. We have developed the
protocol of Professional Fighters Brain Health, in
which the professional fight athletes are participated
and scanned using MRI for a baseline evaluation and
annually over 4 years. The initial finding in the first
year scan has shown that the number of knockout predicts
the diffusion change in white matter. In this study, we
presented the preliminary result of the functional
connectivity alternation. The study indicated that the
functional motor network connection is decreased
according to the number of fights during 1 year.
