Near Point of Convergence and Gait Deficits in Adolescents After Sport-Related Concussion
Conclusions: After concussion, adolescents with receded NPC exhibited significant gait-related deficits compared with healthy controls, whereas those with normal NPC did not. Vergence and gross motor system dysfunction may be associated after concussion. Gait and vergence measures may contribute useful information to postconcussion evaluations.

Vision and Vestibular System Dysfunction Predicts Prolonged Concussion Recovery in Children
Conclusions: Vision and vestibular problems predict prolonged concussion recovery in children. A history of motion sickness may be an important premorbid factor. Public insurance status may represent problems with disparities in access to concussion care. Vision assessments in concussion must include smooth pursuits, saccades, near point of convergence (NPC), and accommodative amplitude (AA). A comprehensive, multidomain assessment is essential to predict prolonged recovery time and enable active intervention with specific school accommodations and targeted rehabilitation.

No Seasonal Changes in Cognitive Functioning Among High School Football Athletes: Implementation of a Novel Electrophysiological Measure and Standard Clinical Measures
Conclusions: These findings refute the notion that routine football participation places athletes at risk for acute cognitive declines. The lack of impairment may be associated with no association with head impacts and cognitive function, increased physical activity offsetting any declines, and/or test sensitivity. How these findings are associated with long-term cognitive function is unknown. (Source: Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine)

Investigation of the Rosenbaum Concussion Knowledge and Attitudes Survey in Collegiate Athletes
Conclusions: The CKI is a valid and reliable measure in collegiate student-athletes. However, the results of the Confirmatory Factor Analysis indicated a poor model fit and improper correlations between attitude items. Therefore, the CAI may not be a sound outcome measure of collegiate student-athlete's attitudes toward concussions. (Source: Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine)

Collegiate Student Athletes With History of ADHD or Academic Difficulties Are More Likely to Produce an Invalid Protocol on Baseline ImPACT Testing
Conclusions: These findings suggest that student athletes reporting comorbid histories or histories of academic difficulties alone produce lower ImPACT composite scores, and that those with comorbid histories or histories of ADHD alone produce invalid protocol warnings more frequently than student athletes without such histories. Future studies should further examine invalid score thresholds on the ImPACT, especially in student athletes with conditions that may influence test performance. Clinical Relevance: Student athletes with history of ADHD or academic difficulties may more frequently fall below validity score th...

The Influence of Heavier Football Helmet Faceguards on Head Impact Location and Severity
Conclusions: Football players wearing heavier faceguards might be slightly more prone to sustaining a higher proportion of top of the head impacts, suggesting that greater faceguard mass may make players more likely to lower their head before collision. Individuals involved with equipment selection should consider the potential influence of faceguard design on head impact biomechanics when recommending the use of a heavier faceguard.

Consequences of Traumatic Brain Injury in Professional American Football Players: A Systematic Review of the Literature
Conclusions: There is strong evidence that a history of concussion in American football players is associated with depression later in life and short-term physical dysfunctions. Also cognitive dysfunctions such as MCI are seen in older players with a history of TBI. These results provide input for actions to prevent TBI and their consequences in (retired) American football players. (Source: Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine)

Length of Recovery From Sports-Related Concussions in Pediatric Patients Treated at Concussion Clinics
Conclusions: High symptom scores at injury and initial visit, time to initial clinical presentation, presence of 2 or more previous concussions, and female sex are associated with prolonged concussion recovery. Further research should aim to establish objective measures of recovery, accounting for treatment received during the recovery. Clinical Relevance: The median length of recovery is 17 days among pediatric sports–related concussion patients treated at concussion clinics. Only 16.3% of patients recovered within one week, whereas 26.4% took longer than 4 weeks to recover. (Source: Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine)
