A concussion has immediate and obvious effects on cognition, but the long-term consequences are not as well understood. In this webinar, we will explain how we used results from a large-scale web-based public study to examine the specific cognitive deficits associated with a history of concussion. With data from the general public guiding hypotheses, we attempted to replicate the results in another group known for a history of head injury: American football players. This webinar will not only review the implications of this study for our understanding of concussion, but demonstrate the power of merging web-based cognitive testing with traditional in-person studies, and explain what new technologies mean for quickly illuminating how a variety of factors—from sleep to COVID-19—can affect the human brain. Finally, we will discuss the advantages of using a powerful web-based cognitive assessment platform like CBS Health, both for researchers and healthcare providers.
