PURPOSE Young children have a high risk of concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Children often appear healthy soon after mTBI, but some have pervasive cognitive and/or motor impairments. Understanding underlying mechanisms recruited after concussion may help for return to play protocols and mitigating what might be lifelong impairments. METHODS We investigated molecular and behavioral changes in a rat model of childhood concussion. Rats received an injury or sham procedure at an… CONTINUE READING
