Conclusions: In high-functioning former professional football players, impairments were observed in several neuropsychiatric domains and on experimental measures of executive function. Many findings were attributable to concussion history rather than to cohort characteristics. As inconsistency of responding) mediated relationships between concussion exposure and Mania, Aggression, and Depression (partially), it warrants further investigation; if it does increase vulnerability to expression of neuropsychiatric symptoms in individuals with a history of multiple concussions, this would constitute a novel and important treatment target.

This article provides recommendations to reduce sport-related concussion disability through primary, secondary, and tertiary preventive strategies enacted during the ED visit. Although many recommendations have a solid evidence base, several research gaps remain. The overarching goal of improving sport-related concussion outcome through enactment of ED-based prevention strategies needs to be explicitly studied.

Conclusions: These results suggest that sustaining a mild traumatic brain injury may have a negative impact on the satisfaction of competence, autonomy, and relatedness needs. To conclude, it is recommended that these concepts be included in psychological intervention programs following mild traumatic brain injury. Implications for rehabilitation A significant decrease in psychological need satisfaction is highlighted following mild traumatic brain injury. It is recommended that the needs of autonomy, competence, and relatedness in intervention programs following mild traumatic brain injury needs to be addressed. The more ...

In Reply We appreciate the comments that Lawrence and Hutchinson have provided regarding our recent systematic review and meta-analysis that identified a higher rate of suicide among those who received a diagnosis of concussion compared with those who did not. We agree that providing absolute and relative risk estimates is ideal. For this reason, we provided the absolute rate of suicide in both groups when these data were available. However, we did not meta-analyze these results for 2 reasons. First, each study had a different duration of follow-up, which limited our ability to easily pool these results. Based on this, we ...
