Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate auditory comprehension in concussed and non-concussed individuals using Subtest VIII of the C-RTT. Thirty non-concussed individuals were matched as closely as possible on gender, age, education and history of concussion to a group of concussed individuals. A Mann-Whitney found that the two samples were significant different at p = .020, and a t-test found a significant difference at p = .008 on the Efficiency Score (ES) of Subtest VIII. The non-concussed individuals performed better than the concussed individuals. Efficiency Score may be useful in assessing comprehension in concussed individuals.
