Introduction: Neuropsychological testing is a valuable tool in concussion diagnosis and management. ImPACT, a computerized neuropsychological testing program, consists of eight cognitive tasks and a 21-item symptom inventory. Method: ImPACT was used to examine the cognitive performance of 104 concussed athletes at baseline, 2, 7 and 14 days post-injury. Dependent measures included composite scores from the ImPACT computerized test battery, as well as a total symptom score from the Post… Expand
Neurocognitive Functioning and Symptom Reporting of High School Athletes Following a Single Concussion
TLDR
The findings were consistent with previous ImPACT research that reported no differences between concussed and nonconcussed athletes 7 days after a concussion, but the symptom scores of the concussed athletes were significantly higher than those who had no concussion. Expand
Recovery progression and symptom resolution in sport-related mild traumatic brain injury
TLDR
In concussion recovery, variability is the rule, rather than the exception, with regard to both impaired neurocognitive functions and recovery duration. Expand
Concussion in Professional Football: Recovery of NFL and High School Athletes Assessed by Computerized Neuropsychological Testing—Part 12
TLDR
Computer-based neuropsychological testing was used within the overall medical evaluation and care of NFL athletes and NFL players did not demonstrate decrements in Neuropsychological performance beyond one week of injury. Expand
Tracking Neurocognitive Performance following Concussion in High School Athletes
TLDR
The data support current recommendations for the conservative management of concussion in the high school athlete and suggest high school athletes could take up to 21 days to return to baseline levels for reaction time. Expand
Baseline Neurocognitive Performance in Professional Lacrosse Athletes
TLDR
B baseline ImPACT scores for MLL are established and it is demonstrated that athletes with a history of concussion have poorer neurocognitive performance compared with MLL athletes without ahistory of concussion. Expand
Concussion History and Cognitive Function in a Large Cohort of Adolescent Athletes
TLDR
Concussions had a more persistent effect on cognitive function than previously thought and the age at which an individual has his or her first concussion may be an important factor in determining long-lasting cognitive effects. Expand
Advanced topics in neuropsychological assessment following sport-related concussion
TLDR
The value of neuropsychological assessment in the management of sport-related concussion has a strong empirical foundation and additional research is needed, however, to refine its use. Expand
The Relationship of Athlete-Reported Concussion Symptoms and Objective Measures of Neurocognitive Function and Postural Control
TLDR
These findings indicate self-report symptoms are associated with athlete deficits in postural control and cognitive function, and the moderate relationship between the symptom reports and the objective measures warrants the continued use of all measures. Expand
The neuropsychology of sport concussion
This thesis presents four empirical chapters that challenge current sport concussion research and practice. Chapter 2 measured sport concussion knowledge in the UK general public using an onlineExpand

Recovery from mild concussion in high school athletes.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that caution should be exercised in returning high school athletes to the playing field following concussion and on-field mental status changes appear to have prognostic utility and should be taken into account when making return-to-play decisions following concussion. Expand
Neuropsychological functioning and recovery after mild head injury in collegiate athletes.
TLDR
Although single, uncomplicated mild head injuries do cause limited neuropsychological impairment, injured players generally experience rapid resolution of symptoms with minimal prolonged sequelae. Expand
Acute effects and recovery time following concussion in collegiate football players: the NCAA Concussion Study.
CONTEXT Lack of empirical data on recovery time following sport-related concussion hampers clinical decision making about return to play after injury. OBJECTIVE To prospectively measure immediateExpand
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. 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
Grade 1 or “Ding” Concussions in High School Athletes
TLDR
The data suggest that current grade 1 return-to-play recommendations that allow for immediate return to play may be too liberal and a reconsideration of current concussion grading systems appears to be warranted. Expand
Neuropsychological Test Performance Prior To and Following Sports-Related Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Neuropsychological tests are useful in the detection of cognitive impairment following mTBI and appear to be more effective than subjective report of symptoms in differentiating between injured and noninjured athletes at 48 hours postinjury. Expand
Cerebral Concussion in Athletes: Evaluation and Neuropsychological Testing
TLDR
A topic review of studies related to cerebral concussion in athletes suggests neuropsychological testing seems to be an effective way to obtain useful data on the short-term and long-term effects of mild traumatic brain injury. Expand
Immediate Neurocognitive Effects of Concussion
TLDR
These findings are the first to demonstrate not only that a gradient of increasing concussion severity is represented by PTA and LOC but also that measurable neurocognitive abnormalities are evident immediately after injury without PTA or LOC. Expand
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.
