  • 2.7 millions Americans will ‘get their bell rung’ by a concussion this year. This condition is classified as a mild traumatic brain injury, potentially causing major deficits. Dr. Elizabeth Pieroth understands first-hand the impact of concussion on pro athletes, youth athletes and average people. She explains new science behind concussion treatment and why the old school ‘dark room’ is no longer valid or effective. Elizabeth is a neuropsychologist who has spent her career dedicated to the assessment and treatment of individuals who suffer concussions. She works with individuals ranging from children to professional athletes. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
