About the Book

This is the first neuropsychology book to translate exciting findings from the recent explosion of research on sport-related concussion to the broader context of mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) and post-concussive syndrome (PCS) in the general population.

Traumatic brain injuries constitute a major global public health problem, but until now, MTBIs, which constitute up to 90 percent of all treated TBIs, have been difficult to evaluate and manage clinically because of the absence of a viable model. Dr. McCrea's book thus provides a welcome evidence base for all clinicians"psychologists, neuropsychologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, and nurses -- involved in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of MTBI. Each section of the book ends with a helpful summary of the "Top 10 Conclusions."
