Background: Multiple concussions have been associated with prolonged symptoms, recovery time, and risk for future concussions. However, very few studies have examined the effect of multiple concussions on neurocognitive performance and the recently revised symptom clusters using a large database. Purpose: To examine concussed athletes with a history of 0, 1, 2, or ≥3 concussions on neurocognitive performance and the recently revised symptom clusters. Study Design: Cohort study (prognosis… Expand
Postconcussive Symptoms After Single and Repeated Concussions in 10- to 20-Year-Olds: A Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that repeated concussions is associated with poorer cognitive function and postconcussive symptoms compared to a single concussion. Expand
Concussion-Like Symptom Reporting in Non-Concussed Collegiate Athletes
TLDR
Non-concussed collegiate athletes report concussion-like symptoms at a clinically significant rate, and previously diagnosed psychiatric disorder was significantly associated with emotional domain symptom reporting, and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder diagnosis was associated with cognitivedomain symptom reporting. Expand
Baseline Neurocognitive Testing in Sports-Related Concussions
TLDR
The results indicate that athletes sleeping fewer than 7 hours before baseline testing perform worse on 3 of 4 ImPACT scores and report more symptoms, suggesting sleep duration before baseline neurocognitive testing as a potential factor in the assessment of athletes’ recovery. Expand
Subjective Cognitive Complaints in Concussion.
TLDR
In this civilian cohort, subjective cognitive symptoms appear to be due to psychological distress and prior psychiatric history more than actual cognitive impairment or other presenting symptoms, illuminating the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of mood/emotional symptoms after injury.

TLDR
Players with a history of prior concussions performed similarly to players with no prior concussion on cognitive testing, and health history factors were more strongly associated with symptom reporting than concussion history. Expand
Cumulative Effects of Concussion History on Baseline Computerized Neurocognitive Test Scores: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
A random-effects pooled meta-analysis revealed that, with the exception of worsened visual memory for those with 1 previous concussion, no differences were observed between participants with 1 or multiple concussions compared with participants without previous concussions. Expand
Relationship of collegiate football experience and concussion with hippocampal volume and cognitive outcomes.
TLDR
There was a significant inverse relationship of concussion and years of football played with hippocampal volume and there was an inverse correlation between years of playing football and reaction time. Expand
The Effect of Prior Concussions on Cognitive Performance in Recreational College Athletes
Context: Sports-related concussions impact between 1.6 and 3.0 million athletes annually in the USA. Although the CDC has qualified sports-related concussion as an epidemic, there is a significantExpand

Concussion history and postconcussion neurocognitive performance and symptoms in collegiate athletes.
TLDR
It was found that concussed collegiate athletes with a history of 2 or more concussions took longer to recover verbal memory and reaction time than athletes without ahistory of concussion. Expand
Early Indicators of Enduring Symptoms in High School Athletes With Multiple Previous Concussions
TLDR
It appears that youth athletes who sustain multiple concussions experience a variety of subtle effects, which may be possible precursors of the future onset of concussion-related difficulties. Expand
Multiple Concussions and Neuropsychological Functioning in Collegiate Football Players.
TLDR
Neurocognitive and neurobehavioral consequences of 2 concussions did not appear to be significantly different from those of 1 concussion, but methodologic issues place limitations on data interpretation. Expand
Relationship between concussion and neuropsychological performance in college football players.
TLDR
It is suggested that neuropsychological assessment is a useful indicator of cognitive functioning in athletes and that both history of multiple concussions and learning disability are associated with reduced cognitive performance. Expand
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. Expand
Sensitivity and specificity of the ImPACT Test Battery for concussion in athletes.
TLDR
ImPACT is a useful tool for the assessment of the neurocognitive and neurobehavioral sequelae of concussion, and can also provide post-injury cognitive and symptom data that can assist a practitioner in making safer return to play decisions. Expand
Lack of long-term fMRI differences after multiple sports-related concussions
TLDR
Results point to the relative plasticity of younger adults’ cognitive abilities following concussion, and there were minimal differences between the two closely matched groups. Expand
Possible Lingering Effects of Multiple Past Concussions
TLDR
The results suggest that some athletes with multiple concussions could have lingering memory deficits, and may perform more poorly on neuropsychological testing or report more subjective symptoms during a baseline, preseason evaluation. Expand
The “Value Added” of Neurocognitive Testing after Sports-Related Concussion
TLDR
Reliance on patients’ self-reported symptoms after concussion is likely to result in underdiagnosis of concussion and may result in premature return to play. Expand
Which On-field Signs/Symptoms Predict Protracted Recovery From Sport-Related Concussion Among High School Football Players?
TLDR
Assessment of on-field dizziness may help identify high school athletes at risk for a protracted recovery and improve prognostic information and allow clinicians to manage and treat concussion more effectively in these at-risk athletes. Expand
