This lecture was given by Dr Bennet Omalu, a forensic pathologist / neuropathologist who discovered a brain disease, brought on by concussions and blows to the head from high impact sports, he named Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). The talk is entitled ‘Knocking Out Concussion in Sport’ and Dr Omalu speaks about his life and research which inspired the book and film ‘Concussion’, where he was played by Will Smith. Dr Omalu discovered CTE in high impact contact sports athletes when he performed autopsies and examined the brains of American football players and World Wrestling Entertainment wrestlers. His work resulted in the understanding of traumatic brain injury and how repetitive and innocuous impacts to the head, can result in permanent brain damage and dementia. Watch this video where he issues a stark warning to those who play such high impact sports and to parents whose children may play such sports.
