The aim of our work was to expand on the knowledge concerning mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), by combining numerical modeling and animal experiments within a joint approach. A three-dimensional finite element model of the rat brain and braincase was developed, and experimental acceleration pulses were applied. Pulse data were obtained from tests(More)
The objective of the study was to better understand the biomechanics of mild traumatic brain injuries (TBI) using a hybrid approach: experiments and computational modeling. A three-dimensional finite element model of the rat skull and brain was used to understand the anatomical region-dependent stress response under mild TBI conditions. Anesthetized rats(More)
The present study constitutes an approach to the action mechanisms of nitrous oxide (N2O) by assessing both the subjective effects induced by the inhalation of this anaesthetic gas, and their electrophysiological correlates, i.e., spontaneous EEG, analyzed by a Fourier algorithm, AEP and CNV. The experiment was conducted single blind in 9 volunteers under 3(More)
Spectral study of E.E.G. activity under enflurane anaesthesia shows a mild and early increase in global power distributed over the whole spectrum up to 20 c/sec, initially without dominant activity. Slow activity at 4-6 c/sec occurs later and gradually becomes slower, although without providing what could be called a specific pattern. These results have(More)
