Former NFL player Phillip Adams had stage 2 chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, when he allegedly gunned down six people before taking his own life in April in South Carolina, officials announced Tuesday.

 

Boston University’s Dr. Ann McKee, who conducted the examination on Adams' brain tissue, said in a news conference Tuesday that Adams' CTE was “unusually severe in both frontal lobes" and may have contributed to his “behavioral abnormalities.”

Weird, its almost like our brains are the centralized action control modules over our bodies, and scrambling them is bad. But how could we confirm this? What if we interviewed everyone that has had to live with a professional contact sport athlete? I wonder if  impulse control issues and disproportionately aggressive responses to typical life stresses would emerge as a pattern in their collective narratives ?
