Healthcheck on Action News

The brain of Chyna, the professional wrestler who died last week, is being donated to science.

Her manager says it will be examined for signs of CTE - chronic traumatic encephalopathy - by Dr. Bennet Omalu.

He was the first to document CTE in football players.

CTE can cause memory loss, rage, and anxiety.

Chyna's manager says she became dependent on sleeping pills and anxiety medications in the weeks leading to her death.

The cause of that death is still under investigation
