Investigation of Neurocognitive Measures of Sport-Related Injury


About this study

The overall objective is to provide an onsite diagnosis with subsequent return to play criteria, as well as, lower the risk of traumatic brain injury by primary prevention through cervical spine neuromuscular control and vision training. The central hypothesis is that improved understanding of neurocognitive measures and function will provide improved diagnosis of concussion and help reduce the incidence of subsequent sports-related injury.
