We have previously shown that sports-related concussion in adolescents is associated with changes in whole-brain properties of white-matter pathways. Here, we assess local changes within these pathways. Twelve adolescents with a clinical diagnosis of subacute concussion and 10 healthy adolescents matched for age, gender, and physical activity completed magnetic resonance imaging scanning. Voxel-wise tract-based spatial statistics and tractography were performed to assess local changes in… CONTINUE READING
