Concussion is a traumatically induced transient disturbance of brain function and involves a complex pathophysiological process at the less-severe end of brain injury spectrum. Sport-Related Concussion (SRC) is increasingly been recognized as an individual entity globally. Whilst the neurological effects of SRC are well known, neuropsychological testing and its implications in SRC remain to elude sports medicine professionals with a dilemma of to do or not do? This editorial aimed to address this issue speculating from an evidence-informed viewpoint. An overview of definition, history and development of neuropsychological testing, its uses and issues related to its interpretation are discussed in this paper, with implications for future research.
