Concussion in Athletics: From Brain to Behavior
This book is the partial product of a conference: “Concussion in Athletics: From Brain to Behavior” held at Pennsylvania State University in October 5–6, 2012. This conference received the generous support of The College of Health and Human Development, Penn State Hershey College of Medicine, the Departments of Kinesiology, Psychology, The Social Science Research Institute, and Springer. Due to this support, we were able to invite world known experts in the field supplementing the host Pennsylvania State University faculty. This conference experienced great success, evidenced by 180 attendees not only from the USA, but also from Canada, Israel, and Russia. It should be noted that the conference was not able to cover all aspects of concussion. A limited emphasis was given to the treatment and management of sports-related concussions. A limited discussion was developed in the area of rehabilitation and recovery of diminished neurocognitive and behavioral consequences of traumatic brain injury. We are very pleased with the fact that several chapters of this book provided by contributing authors address these less studied but still very important aspects of sports-related concussions. We are indebted to all authors for their great contribution to this book.
