Preliminary analysis Boxing and mixed martial arts (MMA) carry risks of head and neck injuries. Padded gloves and headgear are designed to lessen these risks, primarily those resulting from linear acceleration. But what about other types of impact? To date there has been little testing of rotational acceleration or rotational velocity, and no current rotational head injury scoring system. Knowing that rotational acceleration, rotational velocity, and combined linear-rotation impacts are...

Anna Nordström and Peter Nordström of Umeå University, Sweden report their analysis of a prospective nationwide cohort of 440,742 Swedish men in this week's PLoS Medicine, finding that reduced cognitive function in young adulthood was associated with increased risk of subdural hematoma later in life, whereas a higher level of education and physical fitness were associated with a decreased risk. These results need to be confirmed in other large studies....

tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
