Concussions are a serious type of brain injury caused by a jolt, blow or just a simple bump to the head that changes the way the brain normally works. Establishing a baseline profile of how the brain functions pre-injury is imperative in diagnosing and treating concussions.
Participants will learn about concussions and baselines, complete the baseline testing and finish with an optional post-test Q&A. For more accurate results, exercise is not recommended three hours prior to the test.
