About this book

Concussions in Athletics: From Brain to Behavior is a timely and major contribution to the literature that comprehensively addresses the neuromechanisms, predispositions, and latest developments in the evaluation and management of concussive injuries.  Also known as mild traumatic brain injury, concussion in athletics is a growing public health concern with increased attention focusing on treatment and management of this puzzling epidemic. Despite the increasing occurrence and prevalence of concussions in athletics, there is no universally accepted definition, or “gold standard,” for its assessment. Concussion in Athletics: From Brain to Behavior provides a range of major findings that may shed important light on current controversy within the field.  The book is organized in five parts: Evaluation of Concussion and Current Development; Biomechanical Mechanisms of Concussion and Helmets; Neural Substrates, Biomarkers and Brain Imaging of Concussion Research; Pediatric Sport-related Concussions; and Clinical Management and Rehabilitation of Concussions. An invaluable contribution to the literature, Concussions in Athletics: From Brain to Behavior is a state-of-the-art reference that will be of significant interest to a wide range of clinicians, researchers, administrators, and policy makers.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“It provides overviews of the evaluation and management of patients with mild traumatic brain injury, it presents much more on the detailed pathophysiology and the potential for biochemical indicators. … The intended audience is likely allied healthcare professionals … . Practitioners, both with and without extensive concussion management experience, will find this book useful. … I know of no other book that covers this topic as thoroughly. … this is a comprehensive resource with contributions by experts in the field.” (Janna C. Fonseca, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2014)
