[Poster] Gender Differences in Neuropsychological Functioning Following Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: Implications for Assessment and Rehabilitation.

Women generally experience higher incidence of concussions, different and more severe postconcussive symptoms (PCS), and slower recovery. Nonetheless, the literature does not unanimously support sex-related differences in neuropsychological (NP) deficits, arguably due to a lack of consistency in objective NP measures used. The present study aims to elucidate gender differences in NP functioning, using an evidence-based test battery incorporating measures recommended by the Federal Interagency TBI Outcomes Common Data Elements (CDE) Work Group.
