There has been a lot of recent coverage regard the impact that the traumatic brain injury has in the sports and on military personnel. For example, the recent settlement between the NFL and 5,000 NFL players has been all over the news recently. Unfortunately, research also indicates that traumatic brain injury occurs in more every day places as well.

Recently, the Huffington post did a story on the growing public awareness surrounding TBI. Some of the facts appearing in the article are fairly shocking. For example, the article states that car accidents, work and household injuries and assaults resulting in traumatic brain injures lead to 2 million emergency room visits per year. Even worse, these injuries and events contribute to 50,000 deaths per year in the United States.  All in all, these studies show that traumatic brain injury is a real problem among the general population. So much so, that major universities are increasingly devoting effort to studying these incidents.
