Welcome to OLLI-UW! > Monthly Lectures


A concussion is the brief alteration of consciousness, but it's a lot more than that after the event. For many years, concussions were viewed as an almost trivial, brief event. However, as in many things in medicine, times have changed. In the current understanding of concussions, these changes have been largely driven by the relatively new discovery of CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which can produce major alterations in both brain architecture and behavior. Join us to hear Richard Rapport, clinical professor of neurological surgery at the UW School of Medicine, discuss the latest research on concussions.
