#1 Blows and sudden movements to the head may cause long-term injury and possibly death. Who knew?

#2 Soldiers experience high-pressure shock waves and immense forces during explosions in the field, but research suggests brain trauma is caused merely by the sudden head movements.

#3 An explosion causes a sudden acceleration of the skull, a solid thing, which then accelerates the brain, a squishy thing, which gets bruised by the impact and gets little internal 'tears' by the deformation. Same as happens when the skull decelerates suddenly by hitting the windshield during a wreck or the ground after a fall.
