Former football players suffering from depression and memory lapses, cognitive and emotional dysfunction, weird neurological diseases with hard-to pronounce names, like chronic traumatic encephalopathy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis also known as Lou Gehrigs Disease | ALS. She learned that helmets protect the skull, not the brain, and that even boys as young as Parker could suffer lasting damage.

This was cool!! It talked about if  your children should play football. What I got from it was football is in the top 3 most concussion sports! This kid was 4 years old and gave 4 or 5 kids a concussion or knocked them out. If I was the mother, if my child hit someone to the ground or knocked them out. I would get up and walk myself down there grab him and leave. Not cheer on for the little kid to do it again, like in the article. This article intersted me and is a good life lesson article.

How do you sense the passing of time? Your brain has two clocks

How do you sense the passing of time? Your brain has two clocks | Bartonbusecon | Scoop.it

Did you make it to work on time this morning? Go ahead and thank the traffic gods, but also take a moment to thank your brain. The brain’s impressively accurate internal clock allows us to detect the passage of time, a skill essential for many critical daily functions. Without the ability to track elapsed time, our morning shower could continue indefinitely. Without that nagging feeling to remind us we’ve been driving too long, we might easily miss our exit. 

 

But how does the brain generate this finely tuned mental clock? Neuroscientists believe that we have distinct neural systems for processing different types of time, for example, to maintain a circadian rhythm, to control the timing of fine body movements, and for conscious awareness of time passage. Until recently, most neuroscientists believed that this latter type of temporal processing – the kind that alerts you when you’ve lingered over breakfast for too long – is supported by a single brain system. However, emerging research indicates that the model of a single neural clock might be too simplistic. A new study, recently published in the Journal of Neuroscience by neuroscientists at the University of California, Irvine, reveals that the brain may in fact have a second method for sensing elapsed time. What’s more, the authors propose that this second internal clock not only works in parallel with our primary neural clock, but may even compete with it.

They are being billed as the Jimmy Choos of horseshoes but it's more than just the design that will appeal to jockeys and trainers.
