DescriptionConcussion is an open access journal from The Drake Foundation, published by Future Science Group. The journal publishes original research, reviews and commentaries addressing the assessment, management, and short- and long-term implications of concussion.
Concussion is a subset of traumatic brain injury that occurs after a blow or other injury to the head. It has been defined by the Concussion in Sport Group as "a complex pathophysiological process affecting the brain, induced by biomechanical forces."
Exciting developments in the field of biomarker research are shedding new light on how to gauge the severity of concussion immediately after injury, as well as indicating future prognosis. The ongoing and future development of tools and point-of-care tests based on this research will help to ensure appropriate management from the moment of injury and into the long term.
The Journal highlights significant advances in basic, translational and clinical research, and places them in context for the future.
Topics covered include:
Studies and trials in concussion
Biomarkers for assessment and predicting adverse effects
Optimum biomarker selection, validation and application
Management, including return-to-play decisions in sports
