Concussion and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) affect millions of people worldwide. mTBI has been called the Bsignature injury^ of the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, affecting thousands of active duty service men and women, and veterans. Sportrelated concussion represents a significant public health problem, with elite and professional athletes, and millions of youth and amateur athletes worldwide suffering concussions annually. These brain injuries have received scant attention from neuroethicists, and the focus of this special issue is on defining the ethical considerations and developing and elucidating the neuroethical contributions to the discussion about concussion and mTBI.
