I thank Dr Casson et al and Professor Edwards for their interest and appreciate their comments about my recent article,1 providing me with the opportunity to restate my position, hopefully with added clarity. Casson et al disagree with my conclusion advocating a postconcussion RTP interval of at least 4 weeks, stating that it “is flawed owing to a misinterpretation and misapplication of basic research results to the clinical sphere.”
