This ground-breaking text, informed by twenty-first century advances, updates the definition, pathophysiology, late effects, and therapies for concussion. Readers will gain a state-of-the-art understanding of the acute neurobiological changes after a concussive brain injury, and an explanation for the high frequency of long-term neurobehavioral changes.
