Great story on the impact of concussions

Considering the number of stories written and studies conducted, there are still a lot of questions surrounding concussions.

Washington has been a leader in the study and prevention of concussions, so I try to share anything I come across related to the issue.

It is such an important topic, it will continue to be studied and discussed across the country.

A story written by Jonah Lehrer was posted on Grantland.com Tuesday, looking at the impact of concussions on high-school football.

It’s a very good, although harrowing, read.
