Lecture: Computer Simulations and How They Help Medical Doctors
February 28, 2019 @ 13:00 - 14:00FREE
The mechanism of brain injury is complex and depending on the given scenario that leads to a traumatic brain injury, different brain regions are affected yielding different sets of possible symptoms. The regions affected cannot be predicted by simply locating the point of impact for the coup injury and the side opposite the area that was hit for the contrecoup injury. The resulting symptoms will also depend on subsequent head rotation, acceleration and deceleration and whether any protective gear was utilized. Computational simulations offer a unique view of what exactly is happening inside a human skull when exposed to external forces.
