I recently wrote an article on brain injuries and contact sports that may be of interest to the BM community. Here is a link to the article http://www.cerebralhealth.com/brainhealthblog

That´s a good job thank you. Maybe i should be more grateful with my father after all for not let me join ANY sport team. Just a question about the last lines.

"And finally, one of the best ways to help the brain repair itself from head traumas and brain injuries is to exercise the brain itself through learning, experiencing new things, and expanding our creativity".

Will learning, experiencing new things and expanding our creativity really help to repair the brain? I thouth that just like on AD a cultivated mind with more resources will just cover up the symptoms for longer.

"Playing certain sports may be just plain stupid!"
Well let just say they´ve got more winner cards. Young males have the higher mortality rate because they are more pron to do stupid things.

Due to brain plasticity, I do think ongoing learning can help abate brain injuries and may even reverse some injuries altogether. The brain can heal and re-wire.

Interesting commentary you wrote. If only my spinal cord could repair too ... sad.gif
