Summary
"Dr. Omalu identified and described Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) in American football players beginning in 2002 when he performed an autopsy on Mike Webster. Between 2002 and 2007, Dr. Omalu identified the very first five cases of CTE in football players, and identified the very first case of CTE in a professional American wrestler in 2007 when he examined the brain of Chris Benoit. In 2007 and 2009, Dr. Omalu again identified the very first two cases of CTE in retired war veterans suffering from PTSD."--Jacket
