Mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs) that result from participation in sports are a major public health issue affecting 1.6-3.8 million individuals annually. The injury has been postulated as transient and void of long-term consequences when rapidly diagnosed and properly managed. Emerging evidence, however, has suggested an increased risk for late life cognitive dysfunction in those with previous injuries. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate young adults with and without a…

A history of sport-related concussion on event-related brain potential correlates of cognition.

A history of sport-related concussion is associated with sustained deficits in conflict and error monitoring.

Time Course of Clinical and Electrophysiological Recovery After Sport-Related Concussion

Recovery of brain function after sport-related concussion may extend well beyond the time course of clinical recovery and be related to clinical severity and the TBI Index, an objective indicator of injury, recovery, and readiness to return to play.

Long-term effects of mild traumatic brain injury on cognitive performance

The results suggest that the reduction in cognitive performance is not due to greater symptom report itself, but is associated to some extent with the initial injury, and validate the utility of the participant grouping, and demonstrate its potential to reduce the variability observed in previous studies.

Advances in sport concussion assessment: from behavioral to brain imaging measures.

Comparing the results provided by the different assessment tools used in the scientific literature in order to gain a better understanding of the sequelae and recovery following a concussion suggests that cognitive testing should be viewed as one of several complementary tools necessary for a comprehensive assessment of concussion.

Long-Term Cognitive Impairments of Sports Concussions in College-Aged Athletes: A Meta-Analysis

ABSTRACT Introduction/Purpose This meta-analysis aimed to investigate the long-term (3+ months) consequences of concussion across cognitive domains (processing speed, memory, attention, and executive

Influence of Concussion History and Genetics on Event-Related Potentials in Athletes: Potential Use in Concussion Management

It is suggested that measuring cognitive processing through the use of event related potentials (ERPs) may provide a more sensitive assessment of cognitive function, as shown through recent research showing concussion history to influence ERPs components.

Long-Term Effects of Concussion on Electrophysiological Indices of Attention in Varsity College Athletes: An Event-Related Potential and Standardized Low-Resolution Brain Electromagnetic Tomography Approach.

The hypothesis that individuals with a past concussion recruit compensatory neural resources in order to meet executive functioning demands is supported and high-density ERP measures combined with source localization provide an important method to detect long-term neural consequences of concussion in the absence of impaired neuropsychological performance.

Concussion in athletics: ongoing clinical and brain imaging research controversies

Advances in neuroimaging that include electroencephalography (EEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), resting-state functional connectivity, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) offer promise in aiding research into understanding the complexities and nuances of mTBI which may ultimately influence clinical management of the condition.
