New Jersey Pediatric Neuroscience Institute

At the New Jersey Pediatric Neuroscience Institute (NJPNI), we believe that every  patient should receive exceptional and individualized care.  Our mission is to provide the best possible  healthcare in the areas of childhood developmental disorders, pediatric  neurological diseases and pediatric neurosurgical diseases.   We seek to improve your child’s health and  lifestyle by delivering an expedited and accurate diagnosis, thorough explanation  of treatment options and prompt initiation of appropriate surgical and  non-surgical treatments.

Family  involvement, support and education are critical to a child’s understanding of  their illness, treatment of and recovery from that illness.  We understand that the entire family is  affected by childhood illness and that the needs of each family, like each  child, are unique.  We believe that by working together, with patients and their families, our neurosurgeons,  neurologists, ancillary healthcare providers, therapists and orthotists deliver the best care in the world.  We treat every child, and every family, as our own and our patients’ lives have become an important part of our lives.   By  sharing their stories with you we hope that you may better understand the type of care we provide at NJPNI.

ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is the first, most-widely used, and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system. ImPACT was developed to provide useful information to assist qualified practitioners in making sound return to play decisions following concussions.

Developed in the early 1990′s by Drs. Mark Lovell and Joseph Maroon, ImPACT is a 20-minute test that has become a standard tool used in comprehensive clinical management of concussions for athletes from age 10 through adulthood. ImPACT Applications, Inc. was co-founded by Mark Lovell, PhD, Joseph Maroon, MD, and Michael (Micky) Collins, PhD.

Given the inherent complexities of concussion management, it is important to manage concussions on an individualized basis and to implement baseline testing and/or post-injury neurocognitive testing whenever possibe. Neurocognitive assessment can help to objectively evaluate the concussed athlete’s post-injury condition and track recovery for safe return to play, thus preventing the cumulative effects of concussion. In fact, neurocognitive testing has  been called the “cornerstone” of proper concussion management by an international panel of sports medicine experts.

ImPACT can be administered by an athletic trainer, school nurse, athletic director, team doctor or psychologist, provided that they have completed training in the administration of the test. Post-concussion care and the management of concussion should only be administered by professionals with specialized training in concussion management. ImPACT assists doctors in making return-to-play decisions and should never be used as a stand-alone tool or as a diagnostic instrument.

ImPACT is the most widely used computer-based testing program in the world and is implemented effectively across high school, collegiate, and professional levels of sport participation.
