Sunday's Super Bowl is already a distant memory for some, but for family members of an athlete aspiring to one day make it to the big game, recent concerns related to chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in sports continue to loom large.

Now, in an attempt to address some of the ongoing concerns around concussions in football, a team from the University of Arizona has created a virtual reality app called BrainGainz.
