Traumatic Brain Injury Can Result From Direct Impact or Blast Waves

A June 16, 2014, LA Times article indicates that the invisible wave of concussive force that radiates out from a bomb’s blast can be as damaging as an actual blow to the head. According to the Times article, a study released Monday confirms this statement. It found that troops with concussions resulting from direct impact alone were just as likely as those who sustained traumatic brain injury from direct impact-plus-blast to have enduring symptoms such as headache, depression, and memory and concentration problems. The research was published in the journal JAMA Neurology.
