CARE Consortium: Influence of self-reported fatigue and gender on concussion baseline scores

A litany of factors — testing environment, testing group size and mental health history, plus others — can affect the results of baseline concussion tests. But what role does fatigue play, if any?

CARE Consortium: Estimated age at first exposure to football and neurocognitive performance

Previous studies have found that repetitive head impacts to athletes during adolescence can have potentially detrimental effects much later in life. But what short-term effects might that early-life exposure have?

CARE Consortium: King-Devick test time varies by testing modality

CARE Consortium: Comparison of head impact exposure between concussed football athletes and matched controls

While the understanding of sport-related concussion and its short- and long-term consequences has continued apace, what role might exposure to repetitive head impacts play in brain health and vulnerability to injury?

CARE Consortium: How mental health and concussion history influence baseline performance

No two student-athletes are the same, but what factors influence the baseline results that clinicians use to help diagnose concussions and evaluate recovery after injury?
