People who sustain a single traumatic brain injury are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s-like symptoms later in life. – The Center for Brain Injury and Repair, Perelman School of Medicine, the University of Pennsylvania.

Only a slight hit on the head or fall to the ground without hitting the head may be enough to tear veins in the brain [subdural hematoma] often without fracturing the skull with no external evidence of the bruising on the brain’s surface. – The National Institutes of Health
