Bronx Concussion Outcomes Study

What is TBI?Concussion, also known as Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) is very common, affecting nearly 2 million people each year in the US. While most people who experience concussion recover fully, as many as 30% or more do not and live with lasting problems. Assessing patients who are admitted for concussion treatment in the, the Bronx Concussion Study follows mTBI seen in the emergency rooms of the Montefiore and Jacobi Medical Centers patients for a year after their injury. Specifically, this study aims to clarify why some people experience lasting problems, while others do not, as well as the evolution of structural and functional brain changes in people who experience concussion.
