Mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) and concussions can cause a wide range of impairments that affect balance, cognition, vision, sleep, the autonomic nervous system, and mood. Treatment of mTBI may include cognitive, vision, and vestibular rehabilitation, as well as medications for sleep, mood, or headaches. We invite submissions for a Special Issue of Brain Sciences for articles related to treatment or complications of mTBI. Original basic and clinical research, case reports, review articles, meta-analyses, and systematic reviews related to this are welcomed. As research related to mTBI and concussion is quickly evolving, we hope to enhance the understanding of the complications of this condition and how they are treated.
