  • Aim or objective The aim of this study is to consolidate studies of physiological measures following sport-related concussion (SRC) to determine if a time course of postinjury altered neurobiology can be outlined. This biological time course was considered with respect to clinically relevant outcomes such as vulnerability to repeat injury and safe timing of return to physical contact risk. Design Systematic review. Data sources PubMed, CINAHL, Cochrane Central, PsychINFO. Eligibility criteria… CONTINUE READING
