Simple reaction time (SRT) and procedural reaction time (PRT) are speed-of-processing tasks in the Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics (ANAM) that may be sensitive to mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). The investigators measured SRT and PRT throughput (correct responses per minute) at baseline, 6 weeks, and 13 weeks in military personnel with mTBI randomized to local care or 40 chamber sessions (sham-1.2 atmospheres absolute [ATA] air, hyperbaric oxygen-1.5 ATA O2). Scores were assessed at baseline using univariate analysis of variance and across time with repeated measures methods...

Slowed reaction time (RT) represents both a risk factor for and a consequence of sport concussion. The purpose of this study was to determine the reliability and criterion validity of a novel clinical test of simple and complex RT, called RT(clin), in contact sport athletes. Both tasks were adapted from the well-known ruler drop test of RT and involve manually grasping a falling vertical shaft upon its release, with the complex task employing a go/no-go paradigm based on a light cue. In 46 healthy contact sport athletes (24 men; M = 16...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to determine whether agreement exists between baseline comparison (comparison of postconcussion scores to individualized baseline scores) and normative comparison (comparison of postconcussion scores to a normative mean) in identifying impairments after concussion. METHODS: A total of 1060 collegiate student-athletes completed baseline testing as part of an ongoing clinical program. Gender-specific normative means were obtained from a subset of 673 athletes with no history of self-reported concussion, learning disabilities, or attention-deficit disorders...

Abstract In the growing field of sports vision little is still known about unique attributes of visual processing in ice hockey and what role visual processing plays in the overall athlete's performance. In the present study we evaluated whether visual, perceptual and cognitive/motor variables collected using the Nike SPARQ Sensory Training Station have significant relevance to the real game statistics of 38 Division I collegiate male and female hockey players. The results demonstrated that 69% of variance in the goals made by forwards in 2011-2013 could be predicted by their faster reaction time to a visual stimulus, better visual memory, better visual discrimination and a faster ability to shift focus between near and far objects...

BACKGROUND: Currently, there is no evidence-based definition for concussion that is being uniformly applied in clinical and research settings. OBJECTIVE: To conduct a systematic review of the highest-quality literature about concussion and to assemble evidence about the prevalence and associations of key indicators of concussion. The goal was to establish an evidence-based foundation from which to derive, in future work, a definition, diagnostic criteria, and prognostic indicators for concussion...

CONTEXT: Researchers have confirmed that the ruler-drop test could be included as part of a multifaceted concussion-assessment battery and potentially as a way to track recovery from head injury. However, it is unclear if this clinical test of reaction time would be characterized by inconsistent performance because of practice effects. OBJECTIVE: To determine if the ruler-drop test is susceptible to practice effects after serial administration. DESIGN: Descriptive laboratory study...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Shailesh Reddy, James T Eckner, Jeffrey S Kutcher
PURPOSE: We have developed a reliable and valid clinical test of reaction time (RTclin) that is sensitive to the acute effects of concussion. If RTclin is to be used as a sideline concussion assessment tool then the acute effects of exercise on RTclin may need to be controlled for. The purpose of this study was therefore to determine the effect of exercise on RTclin. METHODS: A gender-balanced group of 42 collegiate athletes were assigned to an exercise (n = 28) and a control (n = 14) group using 2:1 block randomization...

The Concussion Restoration Care Center has used the Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics version 4 Traumatic Brain Injury (ANAM4 TBI) battery in clinical assessment of concussion. The study's aim is to evaluate the prognostic utility of the ANAM4 TBI. In 165 concussed active duty personnel (all ultimately returned to duty) seen and tested on the ANAM4 TBI on days 3 and 5 (median times) from their injury, Spearman's ρ statistics showed that all performance subtests (at day 5) were associated with fewer days return-to-duty (RTD) time, whereas concussion history or age did not...

BACKGROUND: Reaction time (RT) is a valuable component of the sport concussion assessment battery. RT is typically measured using computers running specialised software, which limits its applicability in some athletic settings and populations. To address this, we developed a simple clinical test of RT (RTclin) that involves grasping a falling measuring stick. PURPOSE: To determine the effect of concussion on RTclin and its sensitivity and specificity for concussion...

AIM: The aim of the study was to compare baseline cognitive performance of female in respect to male amateur boxers. METHODS: Study population included 28 female amateur boxers. Fifty-six male boxers, matched for age, employment and competitive level to female athletes, formed the control group. All boxers had no history of head concussions (except boxing). Each boxer was requested to: 1) fulfill a questionnaire collecting demographic data, level of education, occupational status, boxing record and number of head concussions during boxing; 2) undergo a baseline computerized neuropsychological (NP) test (CogSport) measuring simple and complex reaction times (RT)...

A baseline computerized cognitive assessment was completed by 483 military cadets before their initial school year. Fourteen cadets concussed during physical education boxing were retested <1 hour after injury and again on return to full activity 4 days later. Compared with baseline testing, postinjury performance on simple reaction time and continuous performance tests was significantly slowed, even after cadets experienced resolution of physical symptoms and were cleared to resume full activity. These findings may be relevant to current concussion management guidelines...

A four-choice reaction time test was carried out on 45 minor head injury cases, 24 hours after the injury and 6 weeks later. Twenty-eight subjects were re-tested after a six month interval. Reaction time measures were also obtained in a matched, general practice control group. The concussion cases displayed significantly poorer performances than the matched controls in four measures, at day 0 and at 6 weeks. The patients also showed serial improvement in these measures up to six months after the injury, when their scores excelled those of the matched controls...

The aim of this study was to examine whether it was possible by a reaction time (RT) test to predict if a patient was to complain of sequelae after a cerebral concussion. 55 patients had an RT test performed 1-5 days after concussion. The test showed a significant (P less than 0.02) prolongated RT in patients having postconcussional sequelae (median 186 ms) after 1 month (27 patients, 49%) compared to the patients without sequelae (median 168 ms). Patients with sequelae after 3 months (12 patients, 22%) also had a prolongation of RT (median 183 ms) although non-significant...

Three groups of patients who had suffered head injury were compared with matched control subjects on reaction time (RT) tasks. Group I consisted of outpatients previously hospitalised for head injury of wide ranging degrees of severity, assessed at varying intervals after injury. Group II was composed of non-hospitalised mildly concussed patients. Group III was made up of head injured patients of varying degrees of severity assessed 7-10 months after initial hospitalisation for their injury. The reaction time tests were graded in difficulty, from a simple RT response to a complex choice RT test...
