Education Week, the weekly newspaper, frequently contains articles on concussion.

In a letter in the October 13th issue, Sue Klund notes that Bethesda Hospital in St Paul Minnesota specializes in brain injuries.  The hospital offers an online test that anyone can take to document what his or her healthy brain looks like.

After the viewer takes this ImPACT test, she says, no one examines it, but it is saved.

If the test-taker later suffers a brain injury, doctors will have a record of what that “normal”  brain looked like before the injury.

When medical personnel have a baseline with which to compare damage, treatment can be much more specific.
