Cognitive testing gaining popularity in concussion management
The number of Massachusetts high schools testing athletes’ brain function with ImPACT has nearly doubled in two years. And more may sign up if state Senator Marc Pacheco has his way. The Taunton Democrat says he plans to file a bill, at the behest of concussion-sufferer Molly Caron of Raynham, that would require baseline cognitive testing for all student athletes. “It’s a common-sense piece of legislation she is asking us to pass,” said Pacheco.
