I had the distinct privilege of meeting and working with Dr. Daniel Amen several years ago when he was first trying to launch his study of retired NFL football players’ brains. Since then, Dr. Amen completed the largest SPECT scan study on chronic traumatic brain injuries in professional football that supported what many were denying… or claiming to be unaware. (You can also search for our earlier posts and videos featuring Dr. Amen by using the Search bar in the upper left corner under the Menu.)
With Super Bowl Week coming up this Sunday, Dr. Amen and his wife, Tana, share a discussion on what they’ve learned about concussions and the brain. Some of these facts may still be shocking for many of you.
