If most movies are true depictions of the world, as we've always believed, then knocks on the head should be accompanied by amnesia, the acquiring of magical powers and elaborate dream sequences a la The Big Lebowski. Unfortunately, when it happened to us, we just got a little sleepy and woke up with an awful headache. Lucky for us we don't play sports. But for those who get hit in the head a lot, or those who coach people who get hit a lot, or for anybody interested in head health, there will be a lecture this Tuesday: Rebound and Recovery: A Concussion Discussion, exploring the ins and outs of getting knocked out and how to treat getting knocked out properly. Cowboys' legend Daryl "Moose" Johnston will share his own concussion stories as he's joined by experts in the field who'll show some new research. The discussion takes place 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Center for Brain Health, 2200 West Mockingbird Lane. To order tickets, or for more information, visit concussiondiscussion.eventbrite.com.
