Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Postconcussion Syndrome The New Evidence Base for Diagnosis and Treatment by Michael A. Mccrea

This is the first neuropsychology book to translate exciting findings from the recent explosion of research on sport-related concussion to the broader context of mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) and post-concussive syndrome (PCS) in the general population. Traumatic brain injuries constitute a major global public health problem, but until now MTBIs, which constitute up to 90 percent of all treated TBIs, have been difficult to evaluate and manage clinically because of the absence of a viable model. This book provides a welcome evidence base for all clinicians involved in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of MTBI. Each section of the book ends with a helpful summary of the 'Top 10' conclusions. The book includes a Continuing Education (CE) component administered by the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology.


The editor has gathered together many of the best and most current peer-reviewed publications on mild traumatic brain injury and compiled an excellent reference. Any well-informed healthcare provider will want to pick up and copy of this book. Furthermore, it should appeal to busy professionals in its concise presentation. * Doody's Notes *
