After suffering a concussion, getting adequate "brain rest" is important because rest helps the brain to heal. During "brain rest," concussion patients are told to avoid loud noises and bright lights and to limit any overly stimulating visual activities such as watching TV, using a computer or texting. However, one visual activity that concussion patients are encouraged to do is to color. Coloring inside "The Time Machine Concussion Coloring Book" is an entertaining yet calming activity that can relax the brain and help prevent boredom during recovery. Because concussions can sometimes interfere with the brain's ability to process complex visual information, coloring inside this coloring book is also an inexpensive and effective way to begin rebuilding visualization and figure ground processing skills.
