Background: Concussion diagnosis and management remains a largely subjective process. This investigation sought to evaluate the utility of a novel neuroelectric measure for concussion diagnosis and return to play decision-making. Hypothesis: Brain Network Activation (BNA) scores […]

A Comparison of Four Computerized Neurocognitive Assessment Tools to a Traditional Neuropsychological Test Battery in Service Members with and without Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

Authors: Wesley R Cole, Jacques P Arrieux, Brian J Ivins, Karen A Schwab, Felicia M Qashu

Journal: Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology

Year Published: 2017

Objective: Computerized neurocognitive assessment tools (NCATS) are often used as a screening tool to identify cognitive deficits after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). However, differing methodology across studies renders it difficult to identify a consensus regarding […]

Prospective, Head-to-Head Study of Three Computerized Neurocognitive Assessment Tools (CNTs): Reliability and Validity for the Assessment of Sport-Related Concussion

Authors: Lindsay D Nelson, Ashley A LaRoche, Adam Y Pfaller, E Brooke Lerner, Thomas A Hammeke, Christopher Randolph, William B Barr, Kevin Guskiewicz, Michael A McCrea

Journal: Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society

Year Published: 2016

Limited data exist comparing the performance of computerized neurocognitive tests (CNTs) for assessing sport-related concussion. We evaluated the reliability and validity of three CNTs-ANAM, Axon Sports/Cogstate Sport, and ImPACT-in a common sample. High school and collegiate […]
