Concussions affect many people – from NHL stars like Sidney Crosby to kids on football fields, hockey rinks and soccer fields across the country.
There’s growing concern about the common brain injury, but how much do we really know about concussions?
On Monday, July 22, find out in UHN's 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Concussions. Featuring TSN analyst/CFL Hall of Famer Matt Dunigan and world renowned concussion expert Dr. Charles Tator of the Canadian Sports Concussion Project, this video clarifies commonly mistaken myths and facts about concussions and highlights what researchers are still working to discover.
Dunigan himself knows the dangers of concussions all too well – they ended his CFL career. Now an analyst with TSN, the symptoms of his concussions — at least 12 in total — continue to affect him today.
"I don't laugh as much, there’s headaches, mood swings, depression,” he told UHNews, noting the impact his changed behavior has had on his wife and kids.
Dunigan has joined forces with Dr. Tator and the Krembil Neuroscience Centre’s Canadian Sports Concussion Project to support research on concussions. He also recently willed his brain to the cause.
