2 Your Health: New Concussion Findings; Music Makes You Feel Powerful


New research shows when high school football players suffer concussions, they're serious, no matter where the player is hit.

Researchers say they were a bit surprised by these results. 

They looked at data on more than 2500 concussions that players had suffered during two recent football seasons.

Researchers found that where on the head the impact happened made no difference in the players' symptoms, the length of time the symptoms lasted or how long players had to be kept off the field.

They say these findings support the call for tackling techniques that keep the head up, instead of aimed down at another player.

A new study shows the right kind of music can make you feel more powerful.

Researchers at Northwestern University had people listen to 31 different musical selections, everything from heavy metal to hip hop.

They found the music with high levels of bass made people feel more dominant and powerful.

They tested people by having them play a dice game. The ones who listened to music with more bass were more likely to predict they'd be able to win the game, even though it was just a game of chance.
