We were discussing the actual physical mechanisms involved in the actions/movements/impacts of the brain and interior skull, during collisions/hits.
The resulting wounds and damage occur as you described them. Brain functions are affected from the damage/wounds/bruising to the brain. Depending on the severity of the wounds/damage, and location of the wounds/damage on the brain itself; one could have a wide variety of brain function impairments, difficulties and maybe long term damage. PCS really is a bizzare and difficult thing to live with and go dat to day with.
