I dont know what scientificly happens,I think that might be a Jon question.
Its just like waking up from if you have been asleep except your head hurts like its being stamped on over and over. Ive been knocked out 3 times(none of which were due to fighting) and after about 10 minutes the headache goes away. Its like a sharp shooting pain but its constant.

"The brain in the head suspended in a kind of fluid. From the brain and through this fluid run many blood vessels and other things besides. When the head is violently struck, the brain is accelerated and moves a few millimetres. This causes delicate blood vessels to stretch slightly causing them to swell and contract.

The brain is the only part of your body that has a constant supply of blood. In a knock out the brain turns off some of its functions in order to prevent further disruption to its blood supply. Its a kind of protective mechanism for the organ.

Reduced blood supply even for short periods of time can cause brain damage. Blood chokes in ju-jitsu for example, can cause oxygen deficits in parts of the brain and eventually cause brain damage. However ju jitsu players dont make a habit of getting choked out. A more ready example of brain damage due to blood chokes can be found amongst those that practice asphixia as a sexual act. It is when a couple/group have sex whilst some/all of the members are being choked or suffocated to or just before the point they lose consciousness.

Little is understood about how the brain operates with regards to healing but it is widely agreed that the brain is too complex to heal itself in most parts although some areas have demonstrated ability to regenerate.

If you are ever knocked out a proper medical investigation has to be carried out to determine the extent of the damage. Concussion is usually accompanied by other brain damage. It is imperative that the brain is not irritated for an extended period of time after an injury otherwise their is the high risk of accumulating brain injury.

It is said the most common cause of brain damage in boxing isn't the knock out but the receiving of many smaller blows for an extended period of time.

Now, I've heard of another type of knock out which is kind of synonymous to fainting which occurs when there is a large nervous stimulation. For example, if you have ever been operated on without general anaesthetic you might have fainted due to this effect. Or reportedly being kicked in the testicles can cause loss of consciousness.
Such a point is supposed to exist under the jaw joint. Hitting the jaw where it joins the skull is suppose to pinch a large nerve centre which is so excrutiating that the subject losses consciousness but I have not seen demonstration of this.

Knockout is most commonly caused by striking the jaw because it acts as a mechanical joint hinged on the neck that multiples the force applied to it on the brain by rotating the head and suddenly stopping" - found this on the internet.

In my experience when you get knocked out you start off just standing there seeing your opponent then bang everything goes black (I could not remember being hit or even the fist going towards me). You get a real intense pain in your head, to me it feels like an electric shock going all around your brain. When I came round I had no idea where I was and couldn't understand what anyone was saying to me for a few minutes. Then I sort of snapped back to reality. I had a migraine for a few days after, so yeah getting knocked out sucks obviously.

More or less the above. I've never been KO'd but the reason is to switch off any unnecessary parts of the body and keep the criticals going (i.e. brain and heart). The closest i've got to being KO'd is from an RNC - ididnt switch off but i think i was close because my whole body had pins and needles.

Its like waking up from a loooong nap during which a midget hit you in the head with a bat repeatedly.

well i was almost blacked out it felt as though i was on a fluffy cloud and my body was trying to force itself onto my back and fall asleep and my eyes where blurry and things got a bit dark you hearing goes if you don't focus on what peaple are saying

i know that when you do get knocked out your heart has its own pacemaker and keeps pumping blood and your lungs keep air circulating into and out your body so over time you will wake up

I've been clocked pretty damn hard, but I haven't been knocked out yet. This is really good info, now I know what to expect when it does happen.
