Post-concussive symptoms reported by mild head injury (MHI) patients have been inadequately understood. Post-concussive symptoms reported by patients with MHI have so far been explained in terms of impairment in neurocognitive functions or deficits in modulation of flow of information. There are no studies that have looked into sensory gating impairment in MHI and its relation to post-concussive symptoms. The purpose of the present paper was to investigate the role of sensory gating impairment in post-concussive symptoms in mild head injury patients. Thirty MHI patients were evaluated for their neuropsychological functions, sensory gating deficits, and post-concussive symptoms. Neuropsychological functions were in the domain of attention, executive functions, and learning and memory. Sensory gating was assessed by Structured Interview for Assessing Perceptual Anomalies and post-concussive symptoms were assessed using the Neurobehavioral Rating Scale. Multiple regression method was used to identify predictors for post-concussive symptoms. Post-concussive symptoms were predicted by sensory gating deficits when sensory gating deficit was one of the predictors along with neuropsychological functions. Post-concussive symptoms were predicted by scores of Digit Vigilance and Digit Symbol Substitution Test, when predictors were restricted to neuropsychological functions. Sensory gating deficits were correlated with performance on Digit Symbol Substitution test. Post-concussive symptoms reported by MHI patients are the result of poor modulation of incoming sensory information.
