about

Despite extensive documentation of postconcussion symptoms, the sequelae of mild head injury have not been fully appreciated until recent years. This book provides the first comprehensive discussion of current advances in the understanding, treatment, and management of mild head injury. In alucid fashion, the contributors discuss neurosurgical strategies and neurobehavioral outcome in adults and children, neuroimaging and neurophysiological methods of investigation, experimental models, sports injuries, and psychosocial and epidemiological aspects. Innovative programs to mitigatedisability after mild head injury are presented by the physicians and psychologists who developed them, and the relationship between psychosocial consequences and postconcussional complaints and neuropsychological sequelae is discussed. Up-to-date and comprehensive, this book will be invaluable toclinicians and investigators in neurology, neurosurgery, neuropsychology, and rehabilitation medicine.

Editorial Reviews

"This book has been long overdue and anxiously awaited by scientists and clinicians dedicated to the study and treatment of mild head injury (MHI). For years, serious gaps have existed in our knowledge of MHI, leading to controversy and uncertainty in the diagnosis and treatment ofMHI-associated functional disability. Minor Head Injury helps to clarify many of these issues and promotes a greater understanding of MHI and the post-concussion syndrome. Section II on experimental models and neuropathology is especially interesting. Section III on clinical management,neurphsiology, and neuroimaging is excellent reading for both clinicians and researchers. The benefit of this book is that it should bring some universality to the manner in which MHI is viewed and uniformity to the manner in which it is treated." --Journal of Neuropsychiatry
