Just an article that has probably no nexus to audio science, that describes how
"Traumatic brain injuries could be caused by low-frequency [40 Hz] vibrations"


Physics World: https://physicsworld.com/a/traumati... could be caused by low-frequency vibrations

Yes, these are internally reflected waves in a gel-like material (brain material) created by impact (not external sound waves), but the 40Hz simulation made it interesting - IMHO.

So, we shouldn't mount butt-kickers on our headrests.

Gotcha. Thanks!
