(WZZM) Grand Rapids, Mich. - Concussions are garnering a lot of media attention lately for a number of different reasons.

Most recently the death of former GVSU football star Cullen Finnerty being linked to a disease caused by repeated head injury from his football career.

There is new research from the University of Pittsburg School of Medicine that researchers say should prompt a reevaluation of the long term effects of concussions.

The research shows that concussions look a lot like Alzheimer's.

Dr. Michael Wolff from BRAINS Grand Rapids explains further in the video link above.

Dr. Wolff says just because you've had a concussion does not mean you will have Alzheimer's, but it is important to be cautious and seek the proper medical attention.
