The Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS): preliminary clinical validity.
Data suggest that the RBANS is effective at both detecting and characterizing dementia of different etiologies, and is consistent with the neuropsychological profiles of these dementing disorders derived from lengthier standardized tests and experimental investigations.
Cumulative effects associated with recurrent concussion in collegiate football players: the NCAA Concussion Study.
This study suggests thatPlayers with a history of previous concussions are more likely to have future concussive injuries than those with no history; 1 in 15 players with a concussion may have additional concussions in the same playing season; and previous concussion may be associated with slower recovery of neurological function.
Acute effects and recovery time following concussion in collegiate football players: the NCAA Concussion Study.
CONTEXT Lack of empirical data on recovery time following sport-related concussion hampers clinical decision making about return to play after injury. OBJECTIVE To prospectively measure immediate
Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS)
* subtest means and SDs for the normal standardization sample, * comments on general issues in interpreting performance on the RBANS, * additional information on test-retest interpretation, * further
Association between Recurrent Concussion and Late-Life Cognitive Impairment in Retired Professional Football Players
The findings suggest that the onset of dementia-related syndromes may be initiated by repetitive cerebral concussions in professionalFootball players, and an earlier onset of Alzheimer's disease in the retirees than in the general American male population.
Standardized Assessment of Concussion (SAC): On-Site Mental Status Evaluation of the Athlete
Findings support the Standardized Assessment of Concussion's effectiveness in detecting concussion and tracking recovery in order to determine a player's fitness to return to play.
Auditory working memory and Wisconsin Card Sorting Test performance in schizophrenia.
Regression analyses suggested that LN span performance predicted the WCST category achieved score, whereas measures of set shifting, verbal fluency, and attention were predictive of perseveration.

The implementation of neuropsychological testing to detect subtle cognitive impairment is most useful once postconcussive symptoms have resolved, and this management model is also supported by practical and other methodological considerations.
 Management of Pediatric Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: A Neuropsychological Review From Injury Through Recovery
A clinical management model focused on both evaluation and intervention from the time of injury through recovery is proposed, with primary value in its potential to speed recovery, minimize distress during the recovery process, and reduce the number of individuals who subjectively experience longer lasting postconcussive problems.
