Blows To The Head Lead To Vision Loss – Part 3 of 3
Derman said future research on this topic would be illuminating if, with specially equipped helmets, blood flow and pressure changes in the brain could be measured during repetitive head blows. “If you can record that there are changes to the brain and there haven’t been significant blows, it would be even more of a concern. We have to assume there is some cumulative effect, with multiple blows causing the problem. It’s like bending a piece of plastic once – nothing happens. But if you do it 40 times, you lacuna the plastic”.
