A peek behind the paper – Dr Ryan D’Arcy on brain vital signs and the detection of concussion-related impairments in ice hockey

Written by Ryan D'Arcy (Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, Canada)

Take a look behind the scenes of a recent study published in Brain, entitled ‘Brain vital signs detect concussion-related neurophysiological impairments in ice hockey’, as we ask co-author Dr Ryan D’Arcy about the main challenges surrounding objective evaluations of concussion, including how extracting brain vital signs could help to overcome them. What inspired you to write this report? We have been working on ways to extract more clinically valuable data from electroencephalography for 25 years. With the rising urgent need for an objective, physiological measure that is deployable at point-of-care, this effort crystalized into the concept of developing a brain...
