The literature on concussion contains elements of confusion in that the word is used for cases in which there is obviously permanent neuronal damage. In turn, this leads to confusion regarding the prognosis and immediate management of cases where a blow to the head is the primary injury. If we adhere to the classic definition of concussion, “a transient disturbance of neurologic function with no structural damage”, a lot of this confusion will disappear, including that surrounding prolonged…

Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: Determinants and Subsequent Quality of Life. A Review of the Literature
TLDR
Analysis of literature related to the clinical, theoretical, and empirical determinants of mild traumatic brain injury in adults, with a focus on outcomes, found mixed results regarding how MTBI affects individuals in overall quality of life and which domains of quality ofLife are affected.
Diffusion tensor imaging in mild traumatic brain injuries
TLDR
It is concluded that diffusion tensor imaging is a powerful technique for early d etection of axonal injuries and may serve as an important tool for monitoring microstructural c hanges during the recovery process.
A Study of Resting State FMRI Dynamic Functional Network Analysis of MTBI
TLDR
The results suggest that those MTBI subject who suffer prolonged recovery exhibit disturbed functional networks, and slowed dynamism in functional connectivity than those of the healthy control or thoseMTBI participants who recovered quickly.
