OBJECTIVES Two novel injury devices were used to characterize impact-induced traumatic brain injury (TBI). One imparts pure translation, and the other produces combined translation and rotation. The objective of this study was to evaluate the neuropathology associated with two injury devices using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) to quantify(More)
In the United States, traumatic brain injury (TBI) continues to be a leading source of death and disability, being responsible for 30.5% of all injury-related deaths [1]. Uncertainty still exists concerning the mechanisms and injury cascades involved. This study seeks to address many of the unknowns and criticisms of previous research. This study is focused(More)
