ESPN - "Researchers find brain trauma in Henry"


Ouch... reading this link sorta puts a damper on things. Looks like Chris Henry's brain showed signs of "chronic traumatic encephalopathy" - quote, "... a form of degenerative brain damage caused by multiple hits to the head" Notable paragraph from the story with a quote from Julian Bales, Director of BIRI and chairman of neurosurgery at West Virginia University: "Now, Bailes -- and likely Henry's family, friends and fans -- will wonder if his neural damage contributed to his emotional volatility, including whatever problems he was suffering the day he died. "I think it did," Bailes said. "Superimposed on the acute brain injuries Chris suffered when he died, there was fairly extensive damage throughout his brain that was fully consistent with CTE. This syndrome is expressed not only as changes in the brain, but clinically, as behavioral changes. And starting with Mike Webster, we have seen common threads in these cases: emotional disturbances, depression, failed personal relationships and businesses, suicidal thoughts, sometimes alcohol or drug use." More and more datapoints are piling up that demonstrate the need for the NFL to sponsor even more research into head injuries that players suffer.
