Mechanical properties of dura mater from the rat brain and spinal cord.
The dura mater is the outermost and most substantial meningial layer of central nervous system (CNS) tissue that acts as a protective membrane for the brain and spinal cord. In animal models ofExpand

Probing the influence of myelin and glia on the tensile properties of the spinal cord
Although glia have been historically classified as the structurally supporting cells of the central nervous system, their role in tissue mechanics is still largely unstudied. The influence of myelinExpand

Mechanical Properties of the Chick Embryo Spinal Cord
Determining the mechanical properties of the spinal cord are useful to identify its response to sub-injurious loading experienced during normal motion, to evaluate the biomechanics of spinal cordExpand
The Effects of Glia on the Tensile Properties of the Spinal Cord
Glia, the primary non-neuronal cells of the central nervous system, were initially believed to bind or glue neurons together and/or provide a supporting scaffold [1, 2]. It is now recognized thatExpand
