Sports concussion neuropsychologist Rosemarie Scolaro Moser, Ph. D.says student-athletes need to get cognitive and physical rest after a concussion in order to reduce the work the injured brain has to
do in order to allow it time to heal.
After a sports concussion physical and mental (e.g. cognitive) rest are keys to recovery, says Dr. William P. Meehan, which means no video games, homework, or other activities that tax the brain and force it to work extra hard.
