Way to support effective brain performance after head injury backgrounded by lack of sleep
(Far Eastern Federal University) Scientists from the School of Biomedicine of Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) with colleagues from Italy, Spain, Romania, and Sweden suggest a way to protect the brain and minimize neurodegenerative processes after concussion head injuries in the presence of extensive previous sleep deprivation. This methodology is especially important given the retirement-age increase that has recently become an international trend. A related article appears in the Progress in Brain Research journal.

Johnny Boychuk Retiring Due To Eye Injury
BOSTON (CBS) — Veteran NHL defenseman Johnny Boychuk is hanging up his skates. The 36-year-old Boychuk is retiring from the game, due to the eye injury he suffered during the 2019-20 season. The Islanders announced the news on Wednesday. Boychuk suffered the injury — the second injury to his eye — in early March, when the skate of Montreal’s Artturi Lehkonen hit his face. Boychuk needed 90 stitches to heal that wound. Boychuk had expressed optimism for potentially playing when the NHL restarted in the summer, but he was able to play in just three games. He suffered a head injury in his first game ba...
