Despite extensive documentation of post-concussion symptoms following apparently mild head injury, only in recent years has the full magnitude of the problem been appreciated. This book provides the first comprehensive discussion of recent advances in the understanding, treatment, and management of mild head injury. It covers strategies of neurosurgical management in adults and children, neuroimaging and neurophysiological methods of investigation, experimental
models, neurobehavioural outcome in adults and children, psychosocial function, sports injuries, and epidemiological aspects. Innovative programs to mitigate disability after mild head injury are reviewed by the physicians and psychologists who have developed these techniques. This thoroughly
interdisciplinary book will be of value to neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, neurologists, and psychiatrists.
