Chapters 5 and 7 of this textbook might be regarded as complementary sides of the same coin. The need for a comprehensive reconceptualization of concussion became apparent early in the twenty-first century due to the striking disparities between observations made by different domains of inquiry (e.g., clinical practice versus neuropsychology versus neuroimaging). Two frames would both seem valid: one wants to know what typical, medically attended concussive brain injuries (CBIs) do to humans. That is, does CBI exhibit a specific biological or clinical profile across human natures? That is the head of the coin discussed in the present chapter. At the same time, it is self-evident that humans display many individual differences in genes, biology, and behavior, such that one could not realistically expect a universal effect of a blow to the head. That other side of the coin, why outcomes vary, is addressed in Chapter 7.
