Leaders in the field sharing authoritative insights and institutional best practices.
In this video, Christina L. Master, MD, reviews areas of research that have grown significantly over the past year, including earlier interventions with active management and characterizing concussion profiles, and how they may impact clinical practice. She recently discussed these topics at the American Academy of Neurology Sports Concussion Virtual Conference.
In this video, Christina L. Master, MD, details the increasing interest in characterizing concussion subtypes to help target interventions, the ongoing search for the “holy grail” diagnostic test for concussion, and more. She recently discussed these topics at the American Academy of Neurology Sports Concussion Virtual Conference.
In this video, Christina L. Master, MD, reviews evidence of the role of rule changes in preventing concussion in hockey and football, research on active rehabilitation in the treatment of concussion, and more.

In this video, Christina L. Master, MD, discusses recently published research on disparities in sports concussion when it comes to availability of flag football vs tackle football, the impact of active specialized sports medicine care vs a passive “wait and see” approach, and more. She recently discussed these topics at the American Academy of Neurology Sports Concussion Virtual Conference.
More adults aged 65 years or older are experiencing severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), and results of a new study show that these patients’ risk of mortality and severe morbidity is high. Lead study author Matthew J. Maiden, PhD, answered our questions about how his team’s findings could impact the way you manage TBI in older patients.
In this podcast, Julian Bailes, MD, from NorthShore University HealthSystem, discusses traumatic brain injury, including mild traumatic brain injury and chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
Traumatic brain injury affects people of all ages, but children are at high risk especially if they participate in sports. Nicole D. Reams, MD, a sports neurologist at NorthShore University HealthSystem, answers our questions about the challenges surrounding diagnosing children with mild traumatic brain injury.
John Leddy, MD, from the University at Buffalo, answers our questions about returning to play after a sports-related concussion, a topic he also spoke about at the American Academy of Neurology’s Sports Concussion Conference.
Alcino Silva, PhD, answers our questions about molecular memory systems and how they relate to neurological diseases—a topic that he will also discuss at the American Neurological Association’s Annual Meeting.
This podcast discusses the perspective of the DoD regarding concussion and other TBIs in military personnel.
