Brain Injury Clinic News: Scientists are now working on blast/impact simulations to study their effect on the brain. They work on developing a special computer that will enable researchers to better understand how a blast on the battlefield can impact soldiers’ brains and lead to traumatic brain injury.
According to ScienceDaily: “Researchers at Sandia have studied the mechanisms behind traumatic brain injury for about a decade. Their traumatic injury modeling and simulation project began with a head-and-neck representation, and now they’ve created a high-fidelity, digital model of a man from the waist up to study the minute mechanisms behind trauma.”1
The study will help develop an improved model of body armor that can decrease the trauma from the blast and prevent traumatic brain injuries. To read the full article on the research being carried out by Sandia National Laboratories, click here.
