From Dave Siever: I agree that avoiding a head injury is the best thing to avoid concussion. However, that being said, our work with concussion suggests that concussions aren’t caused so much by the head injury, but rather by the inflammation fever that follows the concussion. This is why concussions don’t generally show up on an MRI. During the fever/inflammation stage, billions of neurons get taken “off line.” This shuts down the thalamocortical loops throughout the brain and a few things happen: the person can no longer make alpha waves and therefore develops anxiety and insomnia. With impaired sleep, the brain’s waste disposal system (the glymphatic system) shuts down (as it is mostly only active during sleep) and then the brain builds up with amyloid protein deposits, which eventually turns into CTE. Also, glia activates via changes in calcium and because these loops aren't firing anymore, the glia are no longer receiving their calcium signals and quit maintaining the brain. A similar pattern precedes Alzheimer’s as well – and it can also be caused from a fever during a viral infection. So far, all of our work using Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) to treat concussion shows the thalamocortical loops re-establish in 15 - 20 minutes in most cases. If football players use AVE throughout their career, I suspect that they would be much more resilient to concussion and CTE.
