Utility of a multimodal neurophysiological assessment tool in distinguishing between individuals with and without a history of mild traumatic brain injury

Martin Baruch, PhD, et al.

Mild traumatic brain injuries have been termed the ???signature injury??? of the Persian Gulf conflicts. The overall prevalence of concussions is likely higher because of the transient nature of symptoms, the greater attention paid to visible concomitant injuries, and the limited awareness of the cognitive and behavioral deficits manifest in the acute period. Central are the need to make timely, accurate diagnoses and assessments to monitor phases of recovery after injury for informed clearance for a return-to-duty and/ or treatment management. The major obstacle is the lack of a standardized, objective, multimodal system that can accurately and consistently assess physiologic functioning after concussion. We conducted a preliminary validation study of a multimodal concussion assessment battery using eye-tracking, balance, and neurocognitive tests. The results of this study are significant in introducing a economical, compact, mobile hardware system to assess concussions.
