Quantitative Sensory Testing in a Clinical Sample of Children with Concussion

Principal Investigator:

Concussion is a diffuse neurometabolic disturbance leading to symptoms in physical, cognitive, emotional and sleep domains. Clinical management of concussion is based on symptom report in conjunction with physical and neurocognitive evaluation. Early imaging data indicate disruptions in neural function persisting even after symptoms resolution and normalization of physical and neuropsychological evaluation. A clinical marker to serve as an objective indicator of recovery from concussion and to predict persistent symptoms is needed. We plan to evaluate quantitative sensory testing as a potential biomarker in a clinical population of children with concussion.
