He was among the first to find a strong link between multiple concussions and later dementia, depression and memory and intellectual deficits that often lead to Alzheimer's disease. More

The trained bicyclists thought they had ridden as fast as they possibly could. But Kevin Thompson, head of sport and exercise science at Northumbrian University in England, wondered if they go could even faster. So, in an unusual experiment, he tricked them.

After they had done this on several occasions, the cyclists thought they knew what their limits were. More
