Concussions Require Cognitive as Well as Physical Rest

Coaches and teachers routinely make sure that students who suffer a concussion get some time off from physical activity to recover.  But only half as many insist that study time, computer time, test-taking and other mental activities be significantly limited post-concussion.  Otherwise, recovery can be delayed, and permanent effects might be more likely.
