TED-Ed: How concussions work

I would like to share to the reader of this blog the video embedded above from TED-Ed. The great guy there at TED-Ed tackled about how concussions work. He discussed about how concussions affects the brain and person.

In boxing, like many other combat and even sports like soccer, football etc... players suffered concussions. Some were detected early on, but some were develop through the years.

According to TED-Ed "each year in the United States players of sports and recreational activities received between 2.5 to 4 million concussions."

"How dangerous are all those concussions? The answer is complicated," according to TED-Ed.

The video showed also what happen to the brain after receiving a concussion and how it affect the person's behavior.
