    This approach is brilliant in so many ways. Physiological issues post concussion can have some pretty impactful effects that have psychological, emotional, and cognitive consequences. After concussion(s), pain, sensitivity to light and sound, fatigue, and balance problems can severely cut into your energy levels… which contribute to cognitive issues and mood fluctuations… and since mental processing speed can slow down as a result of them, too, that puts an added load on the brain and behavior. I really believe that physiological issues play a dominant role in post-concussive problems, and having a physiological baseline test as well as a cognitive one, to compare against, is a development that’s much needed. Kudos to UK. I hope others follow their excellent example.
