Concussions sustained in war zones are different from those sustained while playing sports, according to a study published in Brain: A Journal of Neurology. Soldiers and Marines do not recover brain function quickly after a concussion, but athletes do, researchers found. Moreover, blast injury survivors were more likely to experience depression and post-traumatic stress than other military personnel. St. Louis Post-Dispatch (03/05)
