Persistent Symptoms after Concussion: A Neuropsychiatric Perspective

Thursday, October 25
2:15 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: Tangerine WF4

Concussion has been a recent “hot topic” in the press, with concomitant increasing concern of expected outcomes. This session will discuss the important differential concept of “persistent symptoms after concussion” in contrast to “persistent post-concussion syndrome.” Dr. Silver will review common predictors of recovery after concussion and what we know about chronic sequelae, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Neglected factors that influence effort and symptom reporting will also be discussed.
