Group/Cohort
Sports induced concussion
Exposure to sports induced concussion
Routine Athletic Exertion
Exposure to routine athletic exertion without sports-induced concussion (non-concussion control)



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation of serum biomarker levels with neuroanatomic and neuropathologic changes from baseline using neuroimaging, following sports-related concussion [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to 48 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation of serum biomarker levels with head acceleration data using head impact telemetry system following sports-related concussion [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to 48 months ]
  2. Correlation of serum biomarker levels and neuroimaging results to standard clinical measures of concussion in the acute phase of injury and at the completion of collegiate athletic participation [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to 48 months ]
