Concussion

A concussion is an injury to the brain that can cause a temporary disruption to how the brain is functioning. They can be caused either directly (e.g. a hit to the head) or indirectly (e.g. an insult to the body that transfers force to the head). This force to the head causes the brain to move within the skull.
