In this article the author discusses the differences between sport concussion and non-sport concussion studies in terms of research focus, terminology and the preferred outcomes of the investigation. He explores the study by Benson and colleagues, which presents findings from a prospective study on concussions in the National Hockey League (NHL) players. He says that collaboration between researchers of the two areas will improve the overall knowledge and treatment of mild brain injuries.
