Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is far from mild. In this article, Lina Amy Hack discusses one of her concussion stories as an example of the classic fall backward. The anatomy of coup and contrecoup brain injury is described and the resulting diffuse axonal injury (DAI) is explained. It is proposed that cranial nerves could be made more prominent in concussion research as it was Hack’s personal experience that her cranial nerves were directly damaged during the described injury.
