Annotated Bibliography examples from your project assignment


Addled, Brian.  The Effects of Concussions on Long-term Memory. Harvard UP, 2011.

This book, published by a leading expert in neuroscience, delves into a large-scale study of memory loss among Division III football players.  Since I am examining the dangers of even a few concussions, this study will likely prove particularly helpful because my other sources focus more heavily on the NFL.

Dexterity, Melinda.  Personal interview. 5 Oct. 2016.

Dr. Dexterity, a brain surgeon (and a family friend), has provided a very helpful context about brain injuries.  Though she is not a specific expert on concussions, her description of how the brain responds to injury helps me to understand my other sources more thoroughly.

Dachtyl, Sarah A.; Morales, Pedro. “A Collaborative Model for Return to Academics After Concussion: Athletic Training and Speech-Language Pathology.” American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology.  vol. 26, August 2017, pp. 716-728. Accessed 12 Sept. 2017.

This study is useful for my work because it describes an academic concussion protocol for K-12, and demonstrates the serious consequences resulting from concussions and the care needed to ensure a student’s successful re-entry into their academic program.
