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

The test, a timed exam that requires participants to identify and name numbers rapidly in order to gauge eye movement and reaction time, has become an important tool for clinicians evaluating concussions.

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?

CARE Consortium: Effect of immediate removal from activity after concussion

It seems intuitive that athletes who are removed from play soon after a concussion might experience better outcomes than those who continue to press on, but is that the case?

CARE Consortium: Quantifying the value of concussion assessment models

A litany of concussion assessment tools are available to practitioners, but what test — or combination of tests — is most effective in making an accurate diagnosis?

CARE Consortium: Influence of age at first concussion

Does the age that an individual first experiences a concussion have an influence on the number of subsequent concussions someone may experience?

CARE Consortium: Predicting collegiate athlete baseline neurocognitive scores

Cognitive abilities among athletes will inevitably vary, and results on baseline tests will reflect those variations. But what factors contribute to those differences?

CARE Consortium: Baseline performance of NCAA athletes

What cognitive differences are present between student-athletes in contact and noncontact sports?
