3

Changes in mood can be a symptom of concussion.

Common symptoms of concussion include headache, poor sleep, neck pain, dizziness, ringing in the ears, blurred vision, nausea and vomiting and changes in mood.
4

The primary concussion treatment centers around rest.

Explanation:
Although research is progressing around concussion, there remain very few proven treatments. The primary treatment centers around rest - not just physical rest, but also intellectual or cognitive rest.

Concussion causes physical symptoms but not emotional ones.

Treatment of the emotional symptoms associated with concussion is often neglected, and there is some evidence that psychological therapy, like cognitive restructuring and reattribution can be quite effective in treating patients’ emotional symptoms.
