Adults with mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) experience a variety of memory, pragmatic, social, and cognitive changes that have significant long-term effects. Though the majority of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are mild, there is a lack of objective and reliable diagnostic markers for the assessment of MTBI. This report provides a critical review of eye tracking as a possible diagnostic procedure for the evaluation of MTBI. Specifically, the purpose of this paper is to describe the characteristics, classification and assessment of TBI, review methods used to evaluate MTBI, and discuss the emergence of eye tracking as an effective diagnostic tool for the disorder.
