Dynamic responses of brain tissues are needed for predicting traumatic brain injury (TBI). We modified a dynamic experimental technique for characterizing high strain-rate mechanical behavior of brain tissues. Using the setup, the gray and white matters from bovine brains were characterized under compression to large strains at five different strain rates ranging from 0.01 to 3000/s. The white matter was examined both along and perpendicular to the coronal section for anisotropy… CONTINUE READING
