http://elibrary.bigchalk.com/elibweb/elib/do/document?set=search&dictionaryClick=&secondaryNav=advance&groupid=1&requestid=lib_standard&resultid=19&edition=&ts=0213A98DA46D0F1F52FD812A078DCFC7_1389569728828&start=1&publicationId=&urn=urn%3Abigchalk%3AUS%3BBCLib%3Bdocument%3B212221048

Noah Prime's insight:

 

G-After a concussion is received rest for a while. When you start to become active again, take it slow

G-Also it may be tough to get back to school work

D-For children, their brains are still developing. They do not yet have all the brain cells that act like insulation

D-Also, childrens have big heads and small bodies. This causes more movement and therefor more damage.

D-May cause, too little or too much sleep, memory loss, problems with attention and learning, increased head pains and headaches, being sensitive to sound and light and emotionaly unstable
