Abstract

Collegiate athletes tested at baseline and post-concussion were administered a self-report measure of post-concussion symptoms pre- and post-testing. Athletes tested post-concussion were significantly more likely to demonstrate an increase in symptoms post-testing, suggesting that the cognitive exertion involved in neuropsychological assessment may exacerbate symptoms in some athletes.
