Active amateur boxers from six US cities were studied in 1986-1990 to determine whether changes in central nervous system function over a 2-year interval (as evaluated by tests of perceptual/motor function, attention/concentration, psychomotor speed, memory, visuoconstructional ability, and mental control, measures of ataxia and brainstem auditory evoked potentials, and electroencephalography) were associated with degree of participation in amateur boxing.
A total of 484 participants were examined at baseline; 393 (81.2%) were examined 2 years later.
At baseline, 22% of the participants had not yet competed in a bout; 9% had never competed in a bout by the second examination.
