There are about 1.6-3.9 million sports injury only in USA each year. Specially, players of sports like American football, hockey, boxing etc are more susceptible to injury. Many athletes present constellation of post concussion symptoms (PCS). Further, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) has been also reported related with sports concussion. Cingulum Cortex is an important hub for emotional and memory processing.
