Can headbanging f*ck your brain power or focus? I realized I can't focus studying for more than 15 minutes or remember important notes. Studying seems to be the hardest thing ever. My fellow metalheads told me there's headbanging can't mess up your brain, but I've not quite seen an intelligent metalhead...

the last metalhead i met was studying commerce in ubc (top post secondary in the area)

i am kind of a metalhead, not as much as i used to be, but i guess i am pretty stupid...

headbanging is sort of just cns overload in a way, you do it for too long and you'll probably explode

It obviously has an effect on your grammar as well.

No, but headbanging excessively is bad for you. I don't think it actually affects your brain function though.

Not to mention how stupid it looks. Mosh pits are alright. Headbanging just looks silly.

No, but it has been linked to stroke, whiplash and gammy neck.

Most of the metal heads I know are actually really smart. I study engineering the University of Illinois and I love metal, so no I don't think head banging really has any significant effect on your brain. Maybe after many years of head banging, there might be some effect, but i doubt it. If anything you'd have damage to your neck long before any brain damage.
#16
Although I blame headbaning for giving me frequent migraines.......no headbaning goes unpunished maybe?

Or maybe you just have no interest in what you;re supposed to be studying. It just seems simpler than brain damage caused by rapid head movements.

that'd be slightly creepy if i didn't find it so amusing.

I remember reading some where (can't remember where, apologies) that a study was done that showed that headbanging didn't actually do any damage longterm. Short term of course you have a headache and possibly whiplash, but no long term brain damage.

Didn't some UGer post a thread a while back about not being able to headbang anymore cause it had given him a seizure or something?

Edit: yup

Who knows then? I do definitely remember reading a study saying the opposite though.

I dunno, it doesn't really matter anyway, everything seems to be potentially fatal nowadays anyway
