Measurement of Symptoms Following Sports-Related Concussion: Reliability and Normative Data for the Post-Concussion Scale

Interpreting Change on ImPACT Following Sport Concussion
TLDR
Examining the psychometric characteristics of Version 2.0 of ImPACT found stability of the test scores and the calculation of reliable change confidence intervals for the test-retest difference scores allowed more precise determinations of deterioration, improvement, and recovery in the initial days following concussion.
Does age play a role in recovery from sports-related concussion? A comparison of high school and collegiate athletes.
TLDR
Preliminary data may suggest a more protracted recovery from concussion in high school athletes, and self-report of postconcussion symptoms by student athletes was not predictive of poor performance on neuropsychologic testing.
Cumulative effects of concussion in amateur athletes
TLDR
This study provides preliminary evidence to suggest that athletes with multiple concussions might have cumulative effects of injury, with differences between groups in symptom reporting and memory performance.
The Role of Concussion History and Gender in Recovery from Soccer-Related Concussion
