In a very special episode we talk with Alan Pearce, a Neurophysiologists and Associate Professor at La Trobe University in Melbourne. Alan is the Research Manager at the Australian Sports Brain Bank Victoria.

We talk about Concussion and CTE, the effects on sportspeople who are suffering from brain trauma, the way CTE is diagnosed and the ongoing research on CTE not only in Australia but across the world.

We are very lucky to have one of Australia's leading experts in this field on the podcast.
