Blast Effects

A National Geographic article on what blast effects do to people. It's now "blast-induced neurotrama". Besides the obvious brain-rattling of a concussion, the blast pressure wave sets up oscillating pressure waves in the blood system, which transfers kinetic energy throughout the body, including the brain.
