The spinal cord is an integral component of the spinal column and is prone to physical injury during trauma or more long-term pathological insults. The development of computational models to simulate the cord-column interaction during trauma is important in developing a proper understanding of the injury mechanism. Such models would be invaluable in seeking both preventive strategies that reduce the propensity for injury and identifying specific treatment regimes. However, these developments… CONTINUE READING
