Symptoms from Concussions Vary for Boys and Girls

The Washington Post reports today on a study presented on the Hill.  The article is worth reading if you are a parent, coach or athlete.

From the article:

Data collected from 100 American high schools during the 2005-06 and 2006-07 academic years showed that while recuperation time is similar for both sexes, males reported more cognitive symptoms (feeling “slowed down” or “in a fog,” difficulty concentrating, difficulty remembering) while females reported more neurobehavioral (sleeping more than usual, drowsiness, fatigue, nervousness) and somatic (headache, nausea, sensitivity to light and noise, and balance problems) symptoms.
