Faculty mentor: Peter Fino

After mTBI, reaction time deficits are present. While a neurocognitive computerized reaction time test is currently utilized, addition of a reactive balance test might be beneficial. Our study looked for an association between a reactive balance test and a computerized neurocognitve test in collegiate athletes. Postural response was not associated with any of the computerized indices which indicates that current guidelines may not be assessing deficits present post-mTBI.
