soccer and brain damage

     Does anyone know anything about the subtle brain injuries which 
occur as a result of "heading" a soccer ball. I read something pertaining 
to this subject a few years ago in a study of Norwegian soccer players. 
How do the injuries occur? How well do the skull and cerebrospinal fluid 
protect the brain from repeated yet minor blows to the head?
     I am very interested in this subject, and I would greatly appreciate 
any help. Feel free to write as much as you like!!!!
