A study on the reliability of quantitative measures of the visual system and their correlation with change in concussion-associated symptoms

This project will determine if abnormal behavior of the visual system correlates with symptoms in patients with concussions. Our first step will be to ensure that we obtain the same values for each of 7 tests when we measure a healthy person twice within a short period of time (called reliability). Next, we will see the how changes in the seven different measures of the visual system over time correlate with changes in patients’ post-concussion symptoms over time. These are the first steps in a program that will eventually also determine how well results on the visual system tests predict quick or slow recovery, and whether they can be used to help guide treatment decisions.
