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 were exposed to varying coronal plane angular acceleration pulses without direct head contact. Experimental outcomes included unconscious time… CONTINUE READING
