What are the cognitive, psychological, and neurobiological markers found specifically in youth who have a poor recovery from a mTBI?

The MRI-4-PCS study examines the neurobiology of youth with persistent post-concussion syndrome (PCS) using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).


Although the majority of youth who suffer a concussion return to normal functioning with no consequences, a significant minority are slow to recover and require intensive rehabilitation services. These children who suffer a protracted recovery face ongoing cognitive problems secondary to their injury (e.g., decline in attention, memory, processing speed). The MRI-4-PCS study seeks to help identify the neurobiological and neurophysiological phenotypes in these children with a protracted recovery, as well as provide correlates with cognitive, psychological, and behavioural measurements.
