A concussion is a serious injury that needs treatment in order to allow the brain to heal properly and to prevent further damage. However, symptoms vary and can be delayed, often making concussions difficult to diagnose. New research suggests that a simple blood test may be able to detect evidence of a concussion up to one-week post injury. Learn more about this new discovery in the following from Science Daily.
