Occipital ridge
The occipital ridge is the region at the back of the head where the base of the skull meets the spine.
This general area is quite vulnerable, and as such offensive maneuvers (esp. in martial arts) have been created to target the occipital ridge. If the occipital ridge is hit with sufficient force, it will cause immediate blackout and risk of spinal injury.

It's Rome, Baby!: Shoot-out at the Occipital Ridge
This kind of thing gets tossed around a lot, but it bears repeating until it sinks firmly into your skull: Whatever it is, however it works that some force, whether it be a blind, amoral force of the organizational edicts of lifeless physics, or some sentient and directed intelligence, it doesn't necessarily matter. Regardless of the schema you subscribe to, the reality is that the societal development of humanity completely leaves the arc of life development in general.

Lucinda Cracknell Massage: Treating neck ache and tension headaches
Have you ever noticed that sometimes the same experience keeps repeating, as if the universe wants you to take notice of something? Several times in the past couple of weeks I've treated clients with tightness in their necks that transfers into the scalp and causes headaches. This has prompted me to explain a bit about why this happens, and a simple technique you can use when it does.
