Concussion, microvascular injury, and early tauopathy in young athletes after impact head injury and an impact concussion mouse model
My embed kungfu is no good... perhaps yours is much better.
If you are interested hit this link...
There is a 4 min video embedded in this study (which was published with a public link... i.e. you have full access.) which I can't scrape for this post (or at least 20 mins of looking couldn't get it done.)
The video is a pretty good summary. I will diarize later if I have time but there is nothing here that a layperson can't wrap their heads around.
This is the sort of publishing Journals should do for all public health studies IMO.
TL;DR - Concussions don't cause CTE. The raw contact does. Concussion protocols don't protect players from CTE risk.
Time to think about flag football Saturdays perhaps. I for one would like to see Ultimate made a varsity sport. Regardless this is good science and is well written.
This study should have some media impact if it hasn't already.
