Abstract

The utilization of neuropsychologic testing following sports-related concussion has dramatically increased over the past 5 years. The inclusion of neuropsychologic test results in the diagnosis of concussion has resulted in increasing questions into the specific role of these procedures in the return-to-play decision-making process. This article reviews the relevance of neuropsychologic testing for the sports medicine physician.
